No person who claims to be a true-blue conservative could possibly be in favor of federal preemption. Most of those who profess to support such an anti-states’ rights principle either know little about preemption or have a special interest agenda that controls their thinking. The concept of federal preemption being pushed by the Bush Administration in its last days runs counter to the principles of “states’ rights,” “federalism,” and “small government,” which are supposed to be the cornerstones of modern conservatism. In the model that the Bush Administration is pushing, total control over consumers’ rights is located in one federal agency. That agency, with the stroke of a pen, can literally destroy the states’ judicial systems and in the process do great damage to the Constitution. I have yet to hear any of my friends who profess to be conservatives explain to me how they can possibly justify federal preemption. In fact, few of them even have a clue when the subject comes up. It soon becomes very clear that they don’t know what preemption really is. Nor do they understand how it would affect them.
