Michael Price writes:

Does anyone really think SCOTUS wants four states of angry voters marching in Washington? This is a stunt to appeal to their backwoods, bible-thumping hick voters who cry about states rights until a state actually passes some new ones that they don't agree with. This will only waste their tax dollars.
