Discussion Forum: 

Response to this discussion must be in 2 complete paragraph that means 5 to 6 complete sentences.

According to your text there are close to 90,000 governments in the United States. In a federal system each level of government has the right to make authoritative decisions about some things. The McCulloch v. Maryland decision in 1819 and later in the 19th century the outcome of the Civil War essentially decided that the national government would be supreme when its laws are in conflict with lower levels of government, such as state governments.

Recently, anarchists and members of Antifa took control by force of arms of six city blocks of the City of Seattle. They called their "territory the Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone. They were in direct violation of the Constitution of the United States and the Constitution of the State of Washington. If the Mayor of Seattle and or the Governor of Washington had not finally ended this siege and returned the area to proper order under authority of the City of Seattle, should President Trump have sent in federal agents to wrest control from the anarchists?

Your response should wrestle with the Supremacy Clause and Federalism. This is not a discussion about our current President, but rather a discussion about state vs federal authority.
