Question of the Day

Posted on the 06 February 2014 by Mikeb302000
Q:  The question -- does federal law supersede or take precedent over state law?
A:  Federal law supersedes per Article VI:
This Constitution, and the laws of the United States which shall be made in pursuance thereof; and all treaties made, or which shall be made, under the authority of the United States, shall be the supreme law of the land; and the judges in every state shall be bound thereby, anything in the Constitution or laws of any State to the contrary notwithstanding.
So, when some local yokel says they won't enforce federal law, they are being an Unconstitutionalist.
