The state and federal relationship isn't that hard. The constitution doesn't tell congress and the federal government what it "can't" do, it
tells the federal government what it MUST do.
The majority of the power is supposed to be with the states. These are domestic issues and so forth. Each state also has a constitution which also
states not what the state "can't" do, but what the state must do. Anything which is not specifically listed, they are NOT supposed to have power
over at all.
It is the job of the federal government to insure that the states do not infringe of the rights of the citizens. A prime example of this would be
the civil rights movement in the south during the 60's. In which case the federal government not only had every right to step in and ensure people
were allowed to vote and so forth, but it is there job to do things like this. Affirmative action and so forth was overstepping the boundaries
however, but those people had every right to vote and enjoy the same freedoms as everyone else, and it is the job of the federal government to make
sure those rights aren't infringed upon.
All things not specifically listed are passed on down the line, with the majority of issues residing on the individual person, and personal
choice/freedom. Thus to be "free".
None of these social programs and such we have now are legit/legal. They are all unconstitutional as these powers were never not once given to them,
they have taken them and ignored the system. And now that the federal government has so much control, the checks and balances are destroyed, as
there is no higher level of government to keep them in check. Thus the more things are centralized, the more the elites get power and the more the
people lose power. Only in a decentralized system where the powers are very limited do the people get their freedom.
Even if you get the government programs and laws you ask for, you are still not free. Change your mind and you will quickly find that out. Only
when the choice is yours and yours alone are you free in that area.
Decentralization is why the US was #1 in most all measurable fields. Math, Science, economy and so on. There is a perfectly logic reason for this
When you centralize everything on a federal level, you get 1 program for the entire country. It takes between 4-8 years to get any chance at
"change". And your vote is 1 in 100 million or so. You have very little say in what actually happens, as we can see now. If you decentralized
these programs to only 1 level lower, the states, then you suddenly have 50 programs.
When you have 1 program, changes come slowly. If the change is bad, the entire country suffers. And whats good in 1 state might not work so well in
another state. If you have 50 programs, each program is able to make changes they think will work. Rather than 1 slow program of change, you have
multiple programs of change. Each program is able to try new things and see what works. Your vote in the state elections is much higher %, and you
vote more often(more power to the people). If a state does something bad, only that state suffers, and to fix their problems they have 49 other
programs to look at and see what works. When 1 program finds something good that works, the other programs can also make these changes.
If you take that down even further to the local levels, then rather than 50 programs, you get 1000's of programs. This allows for the greatest
amount of change and things to be tried out. And if you don't like what a state is doing, you can still move to another state and keep the basic
rights of being in the US. You vote on a local level much more often, and your 1 vote makes a huge difference, where it means practically nothing
on a federal level. You could even become a councilmen yourself without too much effort(in comparison to president/congress etc). These people
will have to answer directly to you, rather than ignoring you unless you are by chance in the majority of the nation.
This is what it means to bring "power to the people". The more things are centralized, that means "power to the elite". Thus why the more
things are centralized in this country, the more the "elite" are involved, which is what allows for all these "conspiracies" in the first place.
Of course, a NWO is about as centralized as you can get.
But more people don't really have a clue how the country was setup, or why it's better. And so they vote on the issues without any thought on the
level or consequences. They give up these "powers" to the politican they think is good. Sure, I'll let Clinton or Obama control my education
they might say, but it's only a GWB away from being screwed up and because you gave away that power, you have no say in it. You are stuck, just as
we are now.
Did you know that if all issues had been decided on a federal level things like the underground railroad could have never existed. On the issue of
slavery, rather than it being from state to state, what if the entire country was "pro-slavery". The slaves who managed to get freed would have
had NO safe place to escape too. Easy to say they could have just made them all free nationwide, but you have to look at the fact that could go
both ways and what you are opening up.
