    Open to everyone. I'd be pleased if you listed who you voted for with your response.


    How would you feel about having the smallest Federal Government possible and letting each state govern as they see fit. That way instead of having an entire country dividided because we are trying to institute what half the voters want nationwide, each state could do what the majority of their voters desire and people would be able to relocate to a state that matches their desires?

    Fuck Yes. At least people can move if they don't like it.

    I know our education system is a mess, but were you never taught in school how this nation was set up to be? The federal government was set to serve the states, not the states serving the feds.
    I absolutely agree. I spent a good amount of time of the phone with my state senator's office today asking for legislation to help Tennessee become more autonomous and get weaned off federal money. May as well use that super majority while we can. :)

    Where did you get the impression that I don't know how it is "supposed to be"?

    Europa has always failed and been embroiled in endless wars and strife due to the above philosophy which the founding fathers deliberately tried to avoid in writing the US Constitution.

    With an approval rating for Congress at 13% I say it is a no brainer. It does not matter how many elections are held, the approval rating seems to just get worse.

    What an indictment against the system that espouses democracy as a virture.
