    abuse. When there is abuse, there has to be an intervention because the object of abuse is to injure, not kill, and the victim resisting risks additional injury, thereby becoming complicit in his own abuse. The federal system works because when either the federal or state authorities overstep their bounds, the other entity can step in and call a halt.
    It isn't the three branches that curtail power, it's the federation.
    In recent decades, it has been in the states where most abuses of power have occurred and the federal authorities have been lax to interfere, in part because the same abusive pols were being bought off with campaign dollars. Democrats on Capitol Hill did accomplish quite a lot with their window of opportunity in 2008 - 2010. While the ACA, to relieve actual physical abuse, got all the attention, the Consumer Protection Bureau will be more effective in the long run. And that's why the money men are seething.
    I think we have to follow the money in New Jersey.
