States rights?

Why is it when it comes to things like sanctuary cities and the legalization of weed progressives are all about states being able to ignore federal law but when it comes to gay rights, abortion or anything that they feel is right than they think that it should be a blanket national law?

Seems a bit hypocritical to me.
Thanks from Jimmyb, coke and Pilgrim

You know if trump won the majority of popular vote but lost the election, the Left would not be complaining about the electoral college. Obviously.

But for Mexifornia, Trump did win the popular vote. America should secede from Mexifornia.

And if Trump had won the majority of the popular vote but lost the election, the right would be complaining about the Electoral College. Obviously.

You have seen nothing yet. Wait until Trump is sworn in and the liberals suddenly re-discover the seperation of powers doctrine.

And when states like Texsas called for secession they would be threatening them w/ the military. They are the epitome of hypocrisy. Truly shameful.
