  •  Local Government is CHEAP government (9+ / 0-)

    Cheap to run
    Cheap to buy

    That's the beauty of States Rights Federalism ...  

    Plutocrats and corporations don't have to suborn an entire national government to write the laws that establish the markets in which they prosper ... or join an uneasy and untrustworthy alliance with the plutocrats and corporations whose business models they do not understand.

    Timber interests can buy the governments of timber states
    Fossil fuel interests can buy extraction and refining states
    Manufacturers can buy Right to Work states

    And everyone is happy:  except employees and consumers

    And what are THEY going to do?  Take themselves to China?
