Thirty states have legalized the use of marijuana in some way, despite Federal laws and regulations to the contrary. The Federal government is doing nothing. No will to change the law, no power to enforce it.
The list of cities, states, and counties that have declared themselves to be sanctuaries for people who have entered the US in violation of US immigration laws continues to grow. The Federal government appears powerless. President Trump has tried different tactics, but has been opposed by the courts and the jurisdictions that have already been overrun.
Now Tennessee is attempting to declare itself a sanctuary state from Federal gun laws.
A protected class is running around the country, exempted from the laws that the rest of us must follow.
The cracks are growing. It is apparent that the Federal government can no longer enforce its own laws.
What comes next? Does the government fall? When? What government replaces it?
The second civil war looms nearer.
