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.

Simple Question?

Why is it so many people want the Government to provide for them?

History has taught me that 13 original colonies were colonized by people who took a leap of faith and settled in a land that was new to them. These people did not wait for a king to provide them with what ever they needed, they took the bull by the horns and made due with what they had. Eventually it was recognized how well they were doing so they got taxed and lost their freedoms. We all know how that turned for our great country. I am not proposing a revolution in that sense, I am proposing that we take our country back by electing people who reflect our values and principles. This is a very peacefull way to change how our country is being run. This task will not be a quick one, it has taken many years to get to this point where government is out of control, it will take many more to get the governement back in control of the people.

We need to get rid of the poor me mentality and replace it with the can do mentality. There was a time when we all thought that we can do anything, unfortunately we now have a lot of people thinking that they hve been wronged and some one needs to take care of them, Governement.

I think a lot of our problems can be solved by having self respect and indepence.

Our Country

We need to have our country returned to the right path before it is destroyed. For many years our Governement has been slowly leading our country down a path were they are trying to create a Utopia. They are trying to change our country into a place that no has to suffer, worry about working hard, worry about a job, woryy about housing, or worry about making a mistake. This will lead to where the Government will make all the decision for everyone, but to do this we will have to allow the Governement to remove all of our rights and freedoms. The Governement will tell us where we can live, when we can hvae medical treatment if any, how much food we can have, where we will work, etc.... The Government is using national crises to to slowly remove our freedoms with terms like "it is for the good of the people". The Great Depression is a great example of how the Governement is willing to trample our rights to get the power they need to control us.
