would be a bad outcome. BE CAREFUL, DEMOCRATS!
More than one quarter of US residents feel so estranged from their government that they feel it might “soon be necessary to take up arms” against it, a poll released on Thursday claimed.
There are things that make it better: The first (and most important one) is Federalism. Get governing as close to the people as possible, and DO NOT try to use sweeping policies to force people. Let a thousand flowers bloom. And let people “vote with their feet.”
Central government takes care of defense and some very basic issues of justice (and inter-state commerce), and that’s about it. STATES do the rest!
We are NOT really “one nation” in a political sense. We are 50 nations united in a few very important things! It’s time to respect that. It’s how we remain together as a country.
