    I've been thinking about how to end the unconstitutional consolidation of power at the federal government for a few months now, and think I came upon a strategy to do this.

    Currently I'm calling it "Fragmentation & Reconstitution" The idea simply stated is you divest the federal government of all unconstitutional agencies and powers and budget items, by transferring their budgets and resources to each state they are based in.

    The states would get back all their taxes with these resources as is prescribed by the separation of powers doctrine and 10th amendment. They would then have to decide how they continued to find and administer these new responsibilities that should have always been theirs in the first place. If they keep them, they would have the capital (in taxes that are no longer collected by the federal government) if they chose to keep them, or they could end them as is their perogative.

    The federal government would instantly receive a massive spending cut, as well as taxes decreasing precipitously on the average tax payer at the federal level.

    On the state level, of course, taxes would spike if each state wished to maintain these agencies inside their borders, but those who did not wish to spike taxes or keep what they considered redundant, extraneous or useless programs could cut them and their citizens' taxes.

    Now, those who do not wish to live in states who desire to be welfare states, may move to better places, or have a chance of taking control of their state and changing how things are run. The money leaves Washington, causing the concentration of lobbyists and special interests to also fragment, weakening their control on this nation.

    I see this type of move as a win/win/win/win/win. Spending decreased, taxes decreased, agency redundancy decreased, corruption decreased and decentralized plus returning the nation to a constitutional basis.

    Opine away.

    Good. I don't care. California will be also getting all their debt and no more bailouts, because the fed won't be able to. Alabama can either pony up the dough to keep services they've been using other state's monies for or let them go too. You seem to think that I'd feel bad about that.

    I'm all for dead socialism.

    I agree with this post. Most socialist systems require absolute power to create 'utopia' and by making each state government the main legal authority in our lives you take away each government's ability to decide how your are going to live. This makes implementing a socialist agenda at the state level pointless as anyone can opt-out of the 'creation'.

    I do wish you guys would truly learn about socialist states and communism in objective sources (not righty blogs). Your flaunted ignorance is getting really old.
