Once again, we have another tragedy in this country that becomes a political football.  Everything, from tragedies and mayhem to sports and weather must become political.

In this episode of the Conservative Conscience, we discuss the solution to reconciliation in this country: localism.  Because everything is dealt with on a federal level and because we have such a polarized country, everything has become a flashpoint, even issues or events that would otherwise stand above politics.  By restructuring our system of government to federalism we will be able to self-sort and enjoy self-government to each group’s linking in their respective areas while preserving national unity on the issues that need to be dealt with at a federal level, such as combating North Korea.       

Key quotes

“The powers delegated by the proposed Constitution to the federal government are few and defined. Those which are to remain in the State governments are numerous and indefinite. The former will be exercised principally on external objects, as war, peace, negotiation, and foreign commerce; with which last the power of taxation will, for the most part, be connected.

The powers reserved to the several States will extend to all the objects which, in the ordinary course of affairs, concern the lives, liberties, and properties of the people, and the internal order, improvement, and prosperity of the State. The operations of the federal government will be most extensive and important in times of war and danger; those of the State governments, in times of peace and security. As the former periods will probably bear a small proportion to the latter, the State governments will here enjoy another advantage over the federal government. The more adequate, indeed, the federal powers may be rendered to the national defense, the less frequent will be those scenes of danger which might favor their ascendancy over the governments of the particular States.” ~ James Madison, Federalist 45
