The lack of a "Tea Party" establishment has already cost a seat in the House of Representatives.Perhaps an "establishment" has a role in a political party, though I would also agree that the "Republican establishment" has crossed the boundary from providing a needed central level of organization to essentially "nesting" in place.

If you can keep your head when all about you are losing theirs, maybe you don't understand the situation. If you can keep your head while all about you are losing theirs, you might just survive the French Revolution. Sometimes, "keeping your head" has an indefinite quality until some later date, when losing your head or not can finally be judged in the light of what was then future events. I suspect we will muddle on through.

Based on that quote, exactly what role does the author see for federalism in the US?

Tinds... allow me to disagree. Remember a ship called the USS Cole? The one who got hit in Aden? Ever think about why it was Aden? It was in Aden because it was unable to reach the Persian Gulf without refueling, and the Navy talked the tanker support required to refuel it safely at sea. I think the "mobile" and "reliable" portions of your post are seriously open to question.

The fundamental problem is that the "war-fighters" are the ones that will never be allowed to be in a position to actually fight a war.

Piper: NEWS FLASH: the military has been a social experiment since 1950.
CommonSense: There is an inherent conflict in accounting concerning auditors of any type, namely, that the "auditor" is being paid by the "auditee." I doubt any "auditor" worth hiring is willing for forgo payment merely to provide a solid audit.

Please, prior to the arrival of such an event, define "a true emergency." Now, when the next "true emergency" arises that does not meet your definition, let us hear nothing from you...
