The Dangerous Movement for States’ Rights

I don’t want to alarm people, but the dangerous spectre of states rights is rearing its ugly head again.  In particular the liberal readers of this site may want to take notice of this truly horrifying news story emerging from New Mexico.  No the aliens haven’t landed again – at least not the little green kind – in fact it’s much worse.  Read for yourself:

Gov. Bill Richardson, who has supported capital punishment, signed legislation to repeal New Mexico’s death penalty, calling it the “most difficult decision in my political life.”

The new law replaces lethal injection with a sentence of life in prison without the possibility of parole. The repeal takes effect on July 1, and applies only to crimes committed after that date.

That’s right comrades the state of New Mexico has foolishly acted independently to subvert the General Will of the federal apparatus!  After all when the benevolent United States Supreme Court overturned it’s previously benevolent ruling that the death penalty was cruel and unusual punishment, it clearly set the standard for all those pseudo-sovereign entities we call “states” to get in line behind leviathan and shut up.  Now all these batshit crazy right wingers are invoking the Tenth Amendment to defend cop killers from lethal injection.  What’s next, drug legalization?!?  These bigots must be defeated before we have distinct, semi-autonomous, towns and communities offending human decency by allowing for the election of cops or giving minorities control of their own school districts.  If only we had a a central government to cling too in trying times like these…
