Some People From 1780s Still Alive According to Arizona State Senate President Pearce

PEARCE: U.S. history, most of us weren’t around when the Constitution was written. But you remember we kind of existed before Congress, the states. We created the Congress, we created the federal government, by compact. Do you know what existed before the Congress, the states? Do you know, you’re not a citizen of the United States. You’re a citizen of a sovereign state. The fifty sovereign states makes up United States of America, we’re citizens of those sovereign states. It is not a delegated authority. It’s an inherent authority that states have over the federal government. [applause] It’s about time somebody gets it right! Think Progress

This is the only thing wrong with this statement, as the Supremacy Clause was erased by the Tea Party’s sheer willpower.

Clause 2: 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, any Thing in the Constitution or Laws of any State to the Contrary notwithstanding. The US Motherfucking Constitution

    If he truly believes that he is a citizen, not of the U.S., but of the state of Arizona, he should try travelling internationally with an Arizona-issued passport. Put his theory to the test. =)
