This effort, while crude, does serve a purpose. We are and have always been a ‘united’ group of States! We came together and formed a government whose primary purpose was to protect us from harm by foreign interests or assaults. The only other interest we had, as a collection of States, was the regulation of interstate commerce. Everything else, was to be left to the INDIVIDUAL STATES as they pursued THEIR concept of the PURSUIT OF HAPPINESS. Sadly, like tendrils of some form of cancer, our Federal Government continued to grow… and grow and grow. Taking, over time, many of the powers that originally belonged to each individual State. The end result, was a forced blending via regulations, which ultimately embarrassed fully the term, POLITICAL CORRECTNESS for all! (Whether your particular State like it or not).
And now in 2017, the tumor that is the Federal Government, acts like all cancerous tumors. It exists mostly for itself. Engorged with self importance, and constantly fed with the monies of a now dying Republic… please forgive any grammatical errors… it was a late night for me… and yes there was some beer involved! Thanks Brandy!
