Do States Have the Right to Impose Totalitarian Communism?

On Monday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “All In,” New York Governor Andrew Cuomo (D) stated that if President Trump ordered something that jeopardized the health of New Yorkers “we would just be off to a lawsuit.”

If the state government had a right to prevent its citizens from DOING LITERALLY ANYTHING, that would be one thing. But state governments have no such right. The federal government’s intervention against New York would be just as valid as the federal government’s intervention to abolish slavery or end Jim Crow laws. States may not turn their citizens into Communist slaves. That’s why we have a national Bill of Rights.
