If every state can have their own set of laws, then how are we the United States of America? If one state votes to ban gay marriage and another doesn't, how is that being united? If one state makes it a law to ban cell phoneswhile driving and the others don't how is that being united?
IMO, laws should be the same across the board. You shouldn't get a new set when you cross the border into the next state over.

Besides the simple fact that is how our Constitution and Nation has been set up..... States are independent with their own governing bodies bound together by the US Constitution.
Plus~Seriously HOW can you possibly expect laws in New York, Illinois, California where the population is heavy to be the same as they would open/rural States like Oklahoma, Montana, and Texas???

I guess this is why I've been accused of being a Socialist... huh?
I'm gonna go with Yup! ;o) Posted this on the another question. Are you familar with the 10th Amendment?
The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.
So, are you saying we should do away with the 10th Amendment of the US Constitution?
