Reagan:The States created the Federal Govt

Progressives have got it barryazzedbackwards. The federal govt did NOT create the states.

 

Mike Pence, governor of Indiana has a solution to the bloated federal government...let the states do what they are supposed to do.

Re: Reagan:The States created the Federal Govt

Somewhat happening already. Pass through funding drop is a big portion of the ongoing deficit reduction. Could be interesting, as has been discussed extensively here from time to time over the years, which of the states would prosper and which would experience various, possibly unforeseen hardships And those states with "Republican Governors" would be most likely to view business as having a considered labor component to the degree that in the abscence of safety nets of any significance they would have to figue out some way to get the costs of pure basic sustinance down to affordable levels. No idea here hoiw that would be accomplished. You? Also, would differences in policy and approach ultimately lead to calls for structured Trade Agreements between the various states? There are some that might feel liberated from having to prop up others through federal means and might want to isolate, after a fashion. Possibly in a punative spirit, even. .

Thank heavens that the blue states will have to quit sending money to the red ones.

Forgot to mention that this speech was, of course, a page out of **bleep** Armey's "Southern Strategy".

Dayton and Messinger make equally good cases for a inheritance tax that actually strips young ones of the funds to do serious mischief in life rather than work.
