“10 Minutes Closer to Freedom”
Do you want to learn about the Constitution? Don’t call a lawyer!
In this episode of Thoughts from Maharrey Head, I explain why you can’t generally depend on lawyers to properly explain the Constitution. Hint: Almost all of them are federal supremacists.

“If a number of political societies enter into a larger political society, the laws which the latter may enact, pursuant to the powers intrusted [sic] to it by its constitution, must necessarily be supreme over those societies and the individuals of whom they are composed….But it will not follow from this doctrine that acts of the large society which are not pursuant to its constitutional powers, but which are invasions of the residuary authorities of the smaller societies, will become the supreme law of the land. These will be merely acts of usurpation, and will deserve to be treated as such. Hence we perceive that the clause which declares the supremacy of the laws of the Union, like the one we have just before considered, only declares a truth, which flows immediately and necessarily from the institution of a federal government. It will not, I presume, have escaped observation, that it expressly confines this supremacy to laws made pursuant to the Constitution.” – Hamilton Fed. 33
