I'm not saying we should cut off those people and let them fend for themselves. What I want if for the power to be taken away from the federal
government and put into the hands of the states and local municipalities.
Let the state and local government handle social welfare programs dedicated to helping the problems of THEIR communities instead of using the
one-size-fits-all, cookie cutter programs designed by people far away in Washington. Each community has different issues and problems and it is best
to allow them to come up with their own unique solutions. When communities are allowed to try different approaches to issues, some may fail and some
may succeed and the nation as a whole will be able to see which programs are most effective and communities will be able to design the best programs
to suit their local needs.
I want the power to meddle in everyday affairs taken away from the federal government and to have them stick what the federal government was designed
for; taking care of issues to big for the states and municipalities to handle, such as national defense and international affairs.
Let the states and local municipalities deal with the issues affecting the people in their local communities.
