For over 200 years, the courts — and especially the United State Supreme Court — have been the arbiters of constitutional questions, not individual congressmen. If we want to leave a functioning republic to future generations, we need to respect our institutions and let them fulfill their proper roles. Anyone can have opinions about what is and is not constitutional, but if every one of our 535 representatives and senators think they understand the constitution better than the courts, we will have chaos.
If Mr. Cawthorn truly had proof of unconstitutional behavior by states, he should have taken it to the courts, not to a political rally that had the potential to become a mob.
