State Government

I have wonder why the State Governments do not stand up to the Federal Government about how they have lost their Freedoms. I see each State Govt looking to the Fed Govt for hand outs. Why do the State Govt do this?

I would think that each state govt would want to be independent as much as possible when it comes to running their state. Right now with how things have changed, if one state fails then the rest of the states are going to be drug into the mess and the mess will keep growing. But if each state was in control of their own state and not reliant on the fed govt if one state failed the rest would be insulated from the failure. There is nothing wrong with a business or a state failing, when this happens it allows people to learn from their mistakes and to improve. Yes it is difficult when it first happens and there are tough decisions to be made that will make it tough on people, but this country was founded by people that did not take the easy way out.

I honestly believe that we need to return to following the Constitution and have strong state govt. The Federal Govt needs to return to it rightful role.
