Nice to hear from you Mr. Maki. When you make claims to me on this subject, I would appreciate you cite your source, or I am likely to think it is just a personal opinion.If the federal government starts intolerably oppressing the state, not under any other circumstance.
I hope you are not delving back into one of those three private letters by Madison in 1830s. They are contradictory, confusing and do not say what you posted here. Example, there is one that says "abuse" of the compact, and does not say who must be engaging in such abuse. You say, "intolerably oppressing" a state, and that it must be the "federal government." I don't think you have correctly paraphrased any of the three letters, no less all of them combined. And as you know, what is written in official documents far outweighs private letters. Madison is on the record about the right of a state to resume its delegated powers in his official documents.
On the US founding documents, please read every world, carefully. People died for the creation of these words.
