Early on Friday Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) took to Twitter to declare his support for the 10th Amendment… When it comes to marijuana.
I have long believed that states should function as their own laboratories of democracy. My bill is a step in the right direction aimed at removing the barriers to state legalization efforts.
— Chuck Schumer (@SenSchumer) April 20, 2018
The Tweet coming today probably isn’t much of a surprise. April 20th is known as “National Weed Day” in popular culture. This seems to be Chuck Schumer’s way of “looking hip” to younger constituents.
But, regardless of opinions on marijuana, for conservatives who believe in the constitution this Tweet may look surprising reasonable. But I wonder if Schumer would have the same opinion when it comes to gun rights, or abortion, or school choice? Definitely not.
This may be the only time that Schumer has used the Tenth Amendment as an argument for an issue. But the fact of the matter is, he doesn’t have an actual record of supporting state’s rights. If you were to attempt to reason with him about expanding gun rights or restricting abortion at the state level, it is a virtual guarantee that he would not agree with a Tenth Amendment argument.
And using states rights wasn’t even his main argument, as seen in a video he posted.
The time has come to decriminalize marijuana. My thinking – as well as the general population’s views – on the issue has evolved, and so I believe there’s no better time than the present to get this done. pic.twitter.com/EIHgsI8j6C

But maybe i’m wrong, and maybe Schumer has taken a strong embrace of the Tenth Amendment. If so, please get out of our way when it comes to passing pro-life, pro-gun, and pro-school choice legislation…
POLL: 72% of Republicans Want Party Leaders Affiliated With Donald Trump’s Policies, Even if Biden Wins
Republicans strongly support Trump’s policies.
New post-election polling reveals that Republican voters want party leaders affiliated with Donald Trump’s “America First” policy vision, even in the event that Joe Biden is ultimately inaugurated as President in January.
The final outcome of the presidential election is still pending litigation in several swing states.
Voter Omnibus’s survey questioned 1,001 national voters on the matter last week, including 465 Republican-aligned voters.
An outright plurality of Republican and Republican-leaning voters want the party to continue with Donald Trump himself as the leader of the party, with 39% of voters expressing such a view.
33% of Republican-aligned voters want the party to continue with new leaders who are more “disciplined.” Combined, these constituencies form a strong majority of 72% in support of the Trump agenda.
A paltry constituency of Republicans desire to see the party return to the Bush/Romney approach of neoconservative globalism, signaling poor prospects for liberal conservatives to regain control of the Republican party.
Republicans are far more concerned that weak Republicans won’t fight against Democrats or abandon Trump’s “America First” policy approach than they are that they’ll advance Trump’s agenda.
Trump is the most popular potential 2024 candidate in the event he leaves office in January.
It’s hard to imagine any politician beating a former President, especially a figure with the political legacy of Donald Trump, in a Republican primary. The fundamentals for a 2024 Trump campaign are strong if he leaves office in January, and it appears that the desire for Republican leaders who share the President’s “America First” vision is overwhelming.
