    There was a 1907 supreme court case Wilson v. Shaw with roots from the commerce clause. This then allowed the 1916 federal road aid act. Then in 1956 was amended for highways.

    Oh...and BTW...that's only the case for federal employees who are ignorant of history and the Declaration of Independence. You know...people like you!
    Think of the irony of an "American" (which you can't really call a leftist an American any more) complaining about American citizens doing exactly what was done to build America and what was called for by American founders.

    There could be nothing more American than the American people forcefully removing the governor and state legislature of Oregon considering both parties have egregiously violated the U.S. Constitution and in doing so, "reduced" Oregonians "under absolute despotism".

    Yep, that's why the American people elected him four times in a row, and historians have named FDR America's greatest president. Unions took hold during the New Deal.

    References to 'throwing off' such Government refers to the national government, not an individual State government within an otherwise functioning Federal system.

    But you go right ahead and keep clamoring for the violent overthrow of a State government and its elected officials and see where that gets you, lightweight.

    Who the hell is Kim Zetter? First we have to tackle the easy stuff like the attempted political coup of a President by high ranking FBI agents (and possibly the CIA) and then we can address Ms (or MR.) Zetter's breathless concern about the "Stingray Spy Tool".

    That's great. Doesn't change a thing. The U.S. Supreme Court has absolutely no power to alter the U.S. Constitution and "Wilson vs. Shaw" isn't a clause in the U.S. Constitution.

    Next?

    It does no such thing, snowflake. Please don't pretend to know about the Declaration of Independence (or any of the founding documents). You clearly don't. It says plain as day "government". It does not say "national government". You lose. As always.

    Wow...what an "achievement". George Washington would have been re-elected 40 times in a row. Here, allow us to enlighten you yet again:
    But Washington wasn't a power-hungry asshole. That's what Democrats are. Washington stepped down on his own - despite the nation begging him to stay - stating "I didn't not fight to replace one king with another".
