The Importance of State-level Authority

The Founding Fathers never intended for us to be ruled by a monolithic central government and the reason should be obvious, even to a big-government liberal: Democracy is a never-ending experiment. For it to work, we need competition of ideas inside government as well as in the business world. As much policy as possible should be decided at the state level so we can try new ideas, observe what doesn’t work and adopt those things that do. A controlling central government denies us the right to experiment, learn, and grow. This is a failing proposition, as other nations have proven.
