Sure be alot of supreme laws...will the
REALLY REALLY REAL MOST supreme law please step
: : 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.
