    Yeah, taking power from Centralized Gov't in Washington and putting it back into the hands of people at the local level is a real nightmare for all you Communists (Liberal Democrats) out there.

    Remember the immortal words of John Lennon who wrote:

    "Power to the Government!
    Power to the Government!
    Power to the Government!
    Power to the Government, Right On!"

    State's rights is generally brought to you by the crowd that supports slavery.

    An OP/Ed from the New York Times? That's your point? What a buffoon.

    Central planners infect all levels of government, that's for sure. But to suggest that Washington's central planners know what's best for the entire country and more than a state does for its own citizens, well, I'd say it's you shoveling the out-of-touch hogwash.

    The states rights/secessionist crowd are American hating racists that want a confederacy of states.

    Where is the evidence that they support slavery?

    Wow Sallow, that's a truly ignorant statement. 150 years ago, it was STATES that nullified the federal government's law that required escaped slaves be returned to their owners in the South. Even after the Supreme Court upheld that law, it was STATES that said "no", we do not recognize this law as Constitutional and we nullify it. The Southern succession started after the they got sick and tired of Northern STATES nullifying laws the central government had created.

    Today, those of us that value state's rights do so out of concern regarding the size of the federal government, their reach, and the debt they've accrued. We're certainly not in support of slavery, but I suspect you know that damn well.

    A disturbingly dishonest post from you my man.

    This is one of Romney's better ideas.
