  •  I'm basically a Hamiltonian on this matter (0+ / 0-)

    I think that on the whole states have been forces for far more bad than good, from slavery, the Civil War and Jim Crow to the suppression of women's, gay, abortion and minority rights, gun control and sensible education policy. They are literally colonial relics whose purpose (as it were) outlived their usefulness in the 1780's. That being said, I agree that it's not all one-sided, e.g. state laws legalizing gay marriage and pot possession.
