Well, it's a shame that so much is focused on for the issue that happened to open the battle, not the war it's simply a small part of.
Missouri, Oklahoma, Texas and others have major 10th amendment issues he can't just executive order his way over. They are lined up where his policy
can't avoid hitting them. Some of the Obamacare provisions come up next and I'll bet it's part of what the delay is about since mandates for business
and individual will trigger some of the Constitutional fights right out of the textbook.
How a state handles it's national guard for internal policy isn't dictated by White House decree, or won't be tolerated that way if it's going to be
tried. I think that is the message carried with the more important meaning that state's borders are more than pretty lines on a map and the United
States is still a plural
Congress passes laws as it's assembled by the states to represent them (how that's working out is another matter). The President isn't a King. His
executive order authority isn't meant to substitute or supersede Congressional (and by extension, State) power, as Oklahoma ....and others...contend
quite clearly he is doing and making a habit of.
If NO cause can take a hit in getting the principles defended, then nothing ever gets protected in the long term.
