"I believe that federalism is, first and foremost, a protection of liberty. And I would just hope that people who say they believe that would be consistent … Without endorsing what they [Colorado and Washington] did, I think they had, under our system, a right to do it … A lot of the worst problems we’ve got in this country, and some of the worst divisions we have, came when the right of citizens in community and in polities, like their state, had those rights usurped by the federal government. And having disagreed with it when it happened on other occasions, I sure wouldn’t call for it here," – Mitch Daniels
