Saved here for posterity.

  1. Rufus T. Firefly Says:

    There are folks much smarter than me here, but I don’t understand why you all don’t see the Congress is as culpable as the President. There are many reasons, but the reasons don’t matter.

    Those with power will almost always try to amass more power and draw it to their sphere of influence. This is why the Founders gave almost all the power to the individual States. Our nation is supposed to be in a continual struggle between the Federal Government trying to centralize power and the States trying to retain it. Because of the XVIIth Amendment and the pool of money created by the XVIth Amendment (and manipulations necessary to win the Civil War and finally remove the scourge of slavery from the Country) (and other reasons) political factions within many of the States have been cooperating with the Federal Government for over a century.

    If a majority of States don’t care enough to get the power they have lost back, why do you assume a majority of Federal Congresspeople will voluntarily choose to relinquish it? It’s completely against human nature. That makes no sense.

    People, if you want to fight a political battle fight it locally. It has to be local. The Federal government is the leviathan. The Legislative branch is even more culpable than the Executive.

    Again, I mean no offense, you are very smart people, but your ideas seem to always revolve around negotiating with the serpent’s tail in hopes it will strangle the serpent’s head.
