Excellent post,I was not surprised that it did not get any responses.The one thing that the present day right and left agree on is a strong centralized federal gvt and very few really support state rights laid out by the 10th.Liked the story about POTUS Cleveland vetoing the bill for appropriations for the draught of Texas and his belief in the spirit of the people.It worked,Texas is still with us today and one of the states in better condition economic wise.
Hard to tell how they would have fared with the spill,they could have done better and maybe worse?

Good article and lots of food for thought in it.

States are flexing their muscles and demanding more and more to be free to manage the affairs within their own borders that are not the job of the federal government. How much of the original intended powers reserved to the states and the people they will actually reclaim without a nasty conflict remains to be seen. I hope I live long enough to see it.
