Ha! Nightmares on the Left? I almost spit my Coke all over my keyboard, that is so funny. The ACLU has been beating your fucking brains out with the Constitution for the last forty years - you guys on the right ignored every word of it up until then. We are all equal before the law? (1865) Bullshit, you on the right said, if you were black. Well, we fixed your ass on that, didn't we? Separation of Church and State? Bullshit you said, with your forced prayers, and your creches and crosses on public property and your Ten Commandants in our courthouses. Fixed your ass on that too, didn't we? Rights for criminal defendents? The hell you said. Well, that worked out for you too, didn't it? Every advance in human justice the last forty years have been because of the Left's defense and insistence on the US Constitution being enforced. Who fears it now? Spying Republican Fascists, quivering impeached "Ten Commandment" judges, that's who.
The Tenth Amendment was responsible for slavery. It gave state's the right to regulate and dictate what it's citizen's basic human rights were. It resulted in a house divided against itself, a country half slave, and half free. 600,000 men died because of the accursed thing. When it was over, the 13th, 14th, and 15th Amendment castrated the States. These Amendments essentially regulate the States, telling them what they can and cannot have in their constitutions. The only rights they have is what the Federal Government tells them they can have, and lets give thanks for that, after a history of 200 years of murder, rape, kidnapping, racial discrimination and all the other ugliness that those who wish to paint lipstick on that particular pig call "states rights" wish to hide from.
