Have we finally reached the place where the leftist meddlers in the federal government have to much authority to harass honest citizens? If not, what will it take?

Heck now, we have not even started. This is just a taste, Obamacare, more govt. spying. Sounded like paranoia just 10 years ago.

Very few citizens today are made of the same character as those who preserved freedom before us. And the white guilt thing, among other dynamics makes us cower as they destroy are childrens' futures.

One of my New Year's resolutions is to work harder to persuade ideological friends and foes alike that the way to reduce partisanship and maximize happiness in America is to embrace federalism -- the view that we should push as many decisions as possible to the lowest local level feasible.

Federalism reduces partisanship by shrinking the importance of the federal government. It increases happiness by maximizing the number of people who get to live the way they want to live.

Unfortunately, proponents of federalism tend to start the conversation with the really big issues: gay marriage, drugs, guns, abortion, etc.
