    Sounds like you've never heard of the Tenth Amendment before.

    In England 'trump' means the same as 'fart' which is weird when it's on the news and stuff.

    Sounds like you've failed to hear about literally 200 years of judicial history which has smashed that perspective to dust.

    When the North was pissed at the south for tariffs on manufactured goods, the South levee'd the argument that they were unable to dissolve the union. When the South seceded, the vast majority of states rebuffed and said no you can't. This has been the ruling dozens of times and in no way is true whatsoever. The constitution gives draconic powers to the federal government which allows it to supercede almost anything a state does.

    The EU has some draconic clauses but ultimately there is no central authority of the EU, it is a true confederation whereas the US is a federalist union.

    When all else fails insult your opponents.
