"that the individual states should be more responsible for their citizens than the federal government? No one wants that."

I'm not so sure that no one wants that. Some of the states would be fine with more control and view federal government as meddling.

I think it is insane how things change from state to state. It's not as though we live in horse and buggy days anymore. This is supposed to be the UNITED States of America. Why should things change so much when you cross state lines?

Time for the Constitution to be updated to reflect new abilities for quick interstate travel, television and internet, all things that were not envisioned by the framers of the Constitution. Like how about same day primaries/caucuses? Am so tired at having my options restricted by the time my state's ability to cast their vote comes into play. It's a process that doesn't need months of drawn out torture anymore.
