Dear Editor,

Our Supreme Court hands down rulings that guide our nation both morally and socially. Should those rulings apply equally to all states and all Americans? The interpretation of these laws varies widely from state to state. Laws pertaining to abortion, gun control, voting regulations, drug use, and taxation vary throughout our land. For instance, an interstate truck driver carrying a weapon for personal protection would break the law in many of our states and not in others. Some states embrace potheads at public venues, in other states they are tolerated. Should our laws apply to all states and citizens equally with the same intent? Is this the United States of America or the Individual States of America?
