The Supreme Court has declared that Congress can rule what Congress creates. Congress did not create the States, but Congress did create federal regions. So Congress can rule the federal regions, but Congress cannot rule the States. How have we been tricked into Federal regions? The Zip Code Trick.
Remember how the government always comes to us and says, I'm from the government, and I'm here to help you. The government went out into the various states and said, We don't want you to have to go to all that trouble of writing three or four letters to abbreviate the name of the state -- such as Ariz. for Arizona. Just write AZ instead of Ariz. Or you can just write WY for Wyoming instead of Wyo. So all of the states of the union have got a new two letter abbreviation. Even a state such as Rhode Island has a new abbreviation. It is RI instead of R.I. They have just left off the periods.
When you use a two letter state abbreviation, you are compelled to use a zip code, because there are so many states, for example, which start with 'M.' ME is Maine -- MI is Michigan. How many people do ever 'i' or make an i that looks like and 'e?' With MA,MO, MN, MS, etc and some sloppy writing, and you could not tell one from another. So we have to use the zip code in order to tell them apart. But if you wrote Mich. or Minn., or Miss., there would be no real problem telling which state it was. There is no harm in using the zip code, if you lawfully identify your state. I found out that no state legislature has met to lawfully change the abbreviation of the state from it's old abbreviation to the new.
Therefore, if you do not use the lawful abbreviation for your state, but use the shorter new abbreviation, you have to use the zip code. Look on page 11 of the Zip Code Directory, and it will tell you that the first digit of your zip code is the federal region in which you reside. If you us AZ for Arizona, you cannot use the state constitution to protect you because you did not identify your state. You used the zipcode, which identifies which federal region you live in. And Congress may rule directly federal regions, but it cannot rule the citizens of any state.
