I realize that such considerations are far beyond the grasp of many provincialist thinkers today. But eventually, it will be an idea that must be examined and debated.

    We must decide if we are one nation with one people.

    Why is education more of a national issue than police? What, in your view, is NOT a national issue?

    Well then obviously the solution is to have higher taxes on the rich everywhere, so they've got nowhere to run to. duh.

    It might help to think of your place of residence as a store selling a commodity.
    They are all selling the same basic product.
    Some political entities can just bring it to the market at less cost.
    The State that can put together the best combination of price/quality product, gets the most residents.
    People voting with their feet is a form of suffrage.
    Competition is a good thing, and will help keep the local governments honest.

    "The necessaries of life occasion the great expense of the poor. They find it difficult to get food, and the greater part of their little revenue is spent in getting it. The luxuries and vanities of life occasion the principal expense of the rich, and a magnificent house embellishes and sets off to the best advantage all the other luxuries and vanities which they possess. ... It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion."

    I agree 100%. First for everything, huh HM?

    If we were one nation, with one set of laws for everyone, we could send all those Northeastern Libbos to prison for violating our constitutional rights.

    It makes me question the intelligence--and patriotism--of the political leaders in any state who would knowingly kiss all that tax revenue good by, rather than finding other ways to enchance tax revenue vice raising the tax rate.

    The idiocy of tax and spend politicos blows me away. Never do they say, "Hey, private sector folks, how can we help you make more money, create more jobs and generate more tax revenue?" No, instead they just want to raise taxes.

    So if states were removed here, you'd move to another country that has a national government and no states... That makes total sense?

    Was there a reason you instantly resorted to ad hominem attacks? Is discussing change not debatable?

    one of the main reason that the statist left hates federalism and the tenth amendment is so that the natural checks and balances that exist when the states properly handle the dole are eliminated when the federal government intrudes into providing welfare-socialism
