The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people
Tenth Amendment to the
Constitution of the United States of America
This, in my opinion is where our focus should be. Throughout our country's great history, we have slowly given many of those rights rightfully reserved to the States respectively to our Federal Government.
Using the current debate as an example, if a state decides to have universal health coverage, so be it. If they can make it work, good for them. I do not believe it can work and I believe that any state that attempted it would become bankrupt (can anyone say CALIFORNIA?) quickly. Nonetheless, it should be a state's choice...it is the State's right!
Our fifty United States need to take their rights back. Individually, as their citizens, through their legislators decide.

  1. I totally agree. Most americans may not realize it but we've been heading for a socialist country for many years now. I don't want the government to decide for me if my father is worth heart surgery at the age of 70, or if my mother is worth knee surgery at the age of 69, and if not let them die or live in agony. we are only a few steps away from allowing assisted suicide if this happens. Another point I like to make is I am tired of paying for illegals to have more rights and help from our government than what we as americans can receive. I recently tried to sign up for assistance, the first question about race is not what you are, it is whether your hispanic or not. what does that tell you. I should change my name to rodriguez, it would be more simple to get help.
