: First of all, the language here does not reference the
: Constitution of the United States, as you seem to indicate
: above. It references the Constitutions and laws of any State.
I am not entirely sure I understand what you
are saying here.
Here is my construction of the Supremacy Clause:
The Constitution for the United States of America
(aka "this Constitution"), all Laws of the
United States (federal government), and all
Treaties made under authority of the
United States (federal government), shall be
the supreme Law throughout America, despite
anything to the contrary which may be found
in the constitutions or laws of any Union state.
And all state judges shall be bound by this
same supreme Law.
Put even simpler:
The U.S. Constitution, federal laws, and
federal treaties are all supreme Law.
When there are conflicts with state
constitutions or laws, this supreme Law
All state judges are bound by the above.
