    Oh there are some things that have happened, and they are not good.
    No, I'm telling you that you asked a nonsense question. You're free to ask it, but I'm not sure what you expect from it. As for what has happened, if you take away the exaggerations and falsehoods from your side, examine the natural cycle, you'll fine nothing significant, good or bad. Only the website trouble stands out as difficult.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    Sorry for the late response. It's been a busy morning. I will respond hopefully this afternoon when I get time.

    I understand now, we call that "Föderalismus".
    Also, as a quick aside, remember the size of the countries we are talking about here. In Europe an individual country is fairly analogous to an American state. Imagine Germany giving up its sovereignty by allowing central planners at the EU determine the health care policy for your country. That is essentially the same thing we American conservatives are objecting to. We want a far more robust central government than you have in the EU, but far less than we have now.

    Actualy, the healthcare policies within the varous countries of the EU are also administered individualy.

    In Germany and Austria for example healthcare is mostly administered by the states.

    In France and the UK healthcare is administered through federal bodies.

    It's the same in Canada and Romney wanted the same thing in the US for individual states. Instead there is this.

    You cannot compare the US to the EU.

    The EU is not a political entety that has total control over each aspect of it`s members policy.

    All it`s members still have federal governments that make decisions that the states within the US cannot.

    Well I could but I didn't.

    The EU does have a great deal of power but I never went into that.

    At one time the individual states had appointed senators to defend state rights but that was changed through an amendment that these senators would be elected instead. The result was an eventual erosion of state powers and more power for the Feds. We can see where this has led where the power has largely drifted away from the people.I think there is some EU in this.

    Apoint it by whom?

    And dont tell me that the states had their political power erroded. Where else in the world do the states of a country have the political power to legalise canabis and determine laws concerning crime, marrige and other?

    The Senators were once appointed by the State Legislators. Obamacare is the result of the government having greater control over the state. Many date this back to FDR but in fact the erosion began before this. But you should spend more time learning on this, if you have the interest, than asking me questions.

    Keep in mind that it is the United States OF America, which suggest that the States were United but with their own rights within that organization.

    Having state representatives in the federal parlaiment put in place by the legislator and not via elections sounds rather undemocratic to me.

    Your system of governance is similar to various other systems in democratic countries all accross the globe. The US is not the only country which is debating the question of powerbalance between state and central government and the size of your country does not make the debate in the US any different from the debates concerning this subject in countries such as Switzerland, France and Germany.
