federalism should apply to expanding rights, not supressing them.<quoted text>
Many people do, but James Madison explains it quite well in Federalist#42. He clearly shows how one may have certain "privileges" in one State while not enjoying the same in another. The only requirement is that a Citizen of one State be granted the SAME privileges as the citizen's of said state are granted while visiting.
" It seems to be a construction scarcely avoidable, however, that those who come under the denomination of free inhabitants of a State, although not citizens of such State, are entitled, in every other State, to all the privileges of free citizens of the latter; that is, to greater privileges than they may be entitled to in their own State... " James Madison- Federalist#42

until the 90's.....the constittuion was generally used to EXPAND peoples rights, not take them away.
clinton knows he was wrong.
will rick santorum figure out that a constitutional amendment TAKING rights away is wrong?? I doubt it.
