The concept of federalism is most definitely a good one. With that said, I think that the way our government is being run, isn't balanced enough and that there is far too much power in the federal or central government. Each state is different than the rest and there is a point when a one size fits all government is not effective for the citizens of the United States. This universal healthcare idea is a perfect example of the ineffectiveness. While it may be good for some, it is not good for all. That is why I think that some things need to be up to the state governments. I the most confusing part about federalism is what is going on in California with medical marijuana dispensaries. By state law they are legal, but by US law it is illegal.
