It's easier for us to put our purists in the House and Senate. Then elect more moderate candidates with a core message of state's rights that will work with those Senators and Representatives to dismantle the Federal machine.
State's rights can be a very palatable message for swing voters.
"Look, New York, why do you need some idiot from Sacramento telling you what kind of car to drive? What kind of toilet to install? How much dues to pay to your union? What kind of light bulb to put in your house? Why do you need Debbie Wasserman-Shultz (whose motto should be that of SGT Schultz: "I know NOTHING!") to tell you what needs to be taught in your schools? Why do you need Harry Reid to tell you where you can smoke?"
