The alternative is to let the states and local governments do what you expect the Federal Govt. to do only on a scale closest to the people. That was the govt. our Founders set up yet here we are today 250 plus years later with an 18.2 trillion dollar govt, 312+ million people, and another group of liberals trying to what the last group of liberals didn't do. I am sure you mean well but a massive Central govt. will never generate what good hearted liberals think.
At this point you are still regurgitating liberal rhetoric from the past.
