Using an amendment of the U.S. Constitution? As a defense in law? Really?

Oh that's good. I'm going to be chuckling all day over that one. In case you haven't heard the Constitution is a "living document" don'tchakno and we've "evolved" well past the 10th.

More power to any state that is willing to try this. Do keep in mind, though, that as much as half, on average, of most states' budgets comes from federal funding. When they turn off the spigot, how many citizens of an affected state will remain loyal to that state?

Not saying don't go for it -- just pointing out what to expect as a result of invoking the 10th.
