Seriously!? So that's your logic why some powers should be at state level vs Fed?

How about I don't like my tax $$$ spend on war? Should we allow each state to have its own army? So that if I don't like a state fighting a war can I move to another state?

Oh yeah, such states are called nations!!!

The logic is quite sound, which is why socialists don't understand it.

The federal government is SPECIFICALLY responsible for the nation's defense per the Constitution. Healthcare is not a right, it's a product, in the overall sense of the word.

The intent of the founding fathers, which socialists can't stand (think Bozo),was to limit the federal government to a certain list of responsibilities. The States had power over all the rest. The purposes were many, but it kept the POS, liar, sleazy immoral Washington politicians and their crony capitalist puppet masters from wielding too much power....stuff that comes from "central planning". Most of the woes of this country comes directly from the idiots we send to Washington, D.C. and the stupid idiots that keep electing them.
