>>931178>So the people of Texas despite being against the practice of abortion, must tolerate it in their state because libshit elites in New York have decreed it as a human right.
Correct.>At that point why even have the input of states on the policies they want to implement for themselves?
Because throwing your hands up and saying "WHY SHOULD WE EVEN HAVE INPUT ANYWAY" because a piece of legislation you want doesn't go through is the mentality of a child. If you feel like your legislation is legally viable then argue it in court. If you win your case it goes through and if you lose your case it doesn't. That's how the law works. >Ok then, who should decide?
That depends on the legislation, in what context its being proposed and the courts. Sometimes lawsuits are filed against specific pieces of legislation and it never leaves state jurisdiction. Other times it gets sent all the way to the supreme court. These are the systems we've set in place. >The people who actually live in Texas or an oligarchy that resides out of state?
We don't live in an oligarchy. Calling it an oligarchy doesn't negate the existence of a federal government or what its function is.>why should the majorities in other states determine what policies Texas adopts
You have no idea how any of this works. Other states don't decide what Texas gets to do. Federal courts get to decide what Texas gets to do because we live in a republic. Additionally, you can't have it both ways. Republicans celebrate the power of the republic every time a new gun law is struck down by a federal judge but then, suddenly, when federal courts don't agree with you its time to shriek about how unjust oligarchies are oppressing your state. Bullshit. You don't get to follow the constitution when its convenient but then cry about it when it isn't.
