Federal Law

   Federal laws do not take precedence over State or Sovereign law as is the current hogwash being imposed on American citizens. The statement sited in the Constitution that stipulates federal precedence is in regard to constitutional law only, not all federal laws consequently created. Only Constitutional law applies to all states as well as the people.
  The founders never intended that future federal laws, not created under authority of the united states, applied to the states or the people unless placed directly in the Constitution by amendment, this also included Supreme Court decisions, they apply only at and to the federal level of government.
   The real question that arises today is laws that the federal government makes that do not fall under its authority only to make. Many federal laws in modern times have been made outside its authority to make them, and thus cannot be imposed on the States or the people without eventually starting a revolution by either the States or the people.
The 10th Amendment reads : "The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people."
In Federalist No. 45, Madison outlines the clear limits on central government power established in the Constitution: "The powers delegated by the proposed Constitution to the federal government are few and defined. Those which are to remain in the State governments are numerous and indefinite."
