Washington DC would like to have a word with you.

Red herring. I didn't claim the States could or should leave the Union. I simply claimed that the Federal Government can't decide for them how much power they wish to delegate to their political subdivisions. You should familiarize yourself with the 10th Amendment and concept of enumerated powers

However you are still failing to look at the picture. The NC constitution is similar to to the US constitution int hat it gives power of taxation to the, or more important, the regulation of trade, to the local governments, so the situation is the same for how the US treats NC as how NC treats locals in this case.:

We know what caused the crash, we do not know what was responsible for the cause. The PTC, however, would have prevented the speed, therefore, the crash.

Also ineffective means it would not have done what it is supposed to do. If it would have prevented the crash as designed then it is effective. It may not be the best to prevent other types of incidents, and a tool may exist that could stop both types of incidents, but that does not make it ineffective at doing what it is designed to do.
