  •  Our problems are national (1+ / 0-)

    Ask yourself a simple question: Would you rather compete with the ROW as 50 states with competing interests or one giant nation with a strong position that bargains hard, fights hard and sticks together? You are saying that the old model of little fiefdoms or city states are better than strong nations. History does not prove this at all.

    Liberalism is a label used by the right to obscure our true agenda which is really nothing but the use of pragmatism instead of ideology.

    •  it's different than you are saying (0+ / 0-)

      you can have strong federal laws, without all the agency fat.  states, counties, city govt can handle whatever the feds are screwing up.  and since DC is a cesspool anyway it should be a no brainer.  

      none of this implies fiefdoms. i realize i qualify for TP troll for agreeing with the erase many federal  bureaucracies position, but O keeps saying there is too much overlap in agencies.

      if you've ever been at a meeting with 6 federal agencies, 5 state agencies, 4 county all arguing over how the shakedown of some company is going to be shared, then you should.  & i'm not anti govt, but I know exactly what a lot of them are griping about

      •  Fair enough (0+ / 0-)

        But your point should be more efficiency and getting rid of the overlap than just duplicating everything 50 times.
