For some unfathomable reason, you keep pointing to the preemption
clause as if it means something to the incorrect ideas you propose.
It doesn't. In any case, the fallback provisions of the GPL are that
if you cannot distribute under its terms, then you may not distribute
at all, so no user will be denied his freedoms because of this.

It is time for you to admit that Congress writes the copyright laws
and not socialist zealots like Richard Stallman.

Even socialist zealots are given the exclusive right to control how
their copyrighted works are copied and distributed. Your bitterness
and resentment of largess in which you may not participate must be
gnawing at you painfully. I suggest that since you are incapable of
dealing with GPLed software, just pretend it doesn't exist.
