This is the only part that I have a problem with at a glance. There are definitely reasons for children to be removed from the home. Child abuse (whether physical, sexual, or emotional/mental) and dangerous living conditions are valid reasons for a child to be taken away from the parents.

All of your points could become a reality only if states actually had rights that the fed govt could not over-rule as they do now.
If that was the case, I would move to the state that was right for me, as long as it's not Alaska. Too damn cold up there and I have no respect for the people of a state whose majority thinks Palin is intelligent in any manner and is fit to be in charge of anything.
Whatever happened to state's rights and the fed not interfering?
Common sense will tell you that a few swats on the rear end is discipline, beating your child till they are bruised and/or bleeding is not.
