90. Nobody should have to move to a different state...
...to keep any of their constitutional rights.

How about we ban the freedom of speech, in your state. You can't say anything against the political machine or even attend church. If you don't like it, you can always move to another state. So you decide to move to Nebraska. Two years later Nebraska sees how effective that was in getting the riff raff to leave your home state and they decide to do the same. Now you get to sell your house and move your family again. You feel like a bunch of refugees on the run. What's to stop all 50 states from doing the same?

No, constitutional rights are not optional. If you don't like it, instead of me moving to another state, how about you move to another country?
