Why can't local towns and cities and their States Do A Better Job Than Distant Washington D.C.? Most things local towns/cities and states could do a Much Better Job of than the Feds. Military, National Defense, a few others...yes, the Feds...otherwise...

...it is a very inefficient and unaccountable situation to have someone far away in D.C. affecting your life, your family's life, and the life of your community and state.

And taking your money, taking THEIR PART, and then trickling it back down to you.

Why The Middle Man who will get his share?

The 2012 argument that Mississippi would enslave their victim citizens if not for the Federal Government, is a weak and extremist argument.

No one can really show why So Many Federal Programs and Services couldn't be more efficient and less wasteful at the local/state level.

W.T. says:
"Socialism, like the ancient ideas from which it springs, confuses the distinction between government and society. As a result of this, every time we object to a thing being done by government, the socialists conclude that we object to its being done at all. We disapprove of state education. Then the socialists say that we are opposed to any education. We object to a state religion. Then the socialists say that we want no religion at all. We object to a state-enforced equality. Then they say that we are against equality. And so on, and so on. It is as if the socialists were to accuse us of not wanting persons to eat because we do not want the state to raise grain." -- Frédéric Bastiat

In the past month we have had several small towns lose their leadership due to embezzlement, scandal, and in one case police bodyguards for stolen goods which turned out to be an FBI sting.
