I believe the more localized the government the better. In my opinion, the U.S. would be better off as a confederation of states, more like the E.U (in structure, anyway.) That way if Texas wants this and New York wants that, great. Their citizens can each have their own way.
They tried that first, remember? From revolutionary times through 1787 they operated under the Articles of Confederation. And by then they realized it wasn't going to work too well for things like interstate commerce and foreign affairs.

And in many ways the Constitution was an incremental step, at first. But today, with so much of what we do being interstate and international commerce, so many more laws that impact ordinary citizens are federal in origin. And that IS what the Constitution calls for.
