Based on some of the comments from the other posts (here and here) I wanted to address something that should clarify my position a bit and also add to the discussion.

I'm a bit late on this one, but wanted to note that I agree for the most part. It is incredible the transfer of power that has taken place between the states and the federal government since the founding of our country. Mrs. G argues that this is, in large part, the result of the 17th Amendment to the Constitution which provided for the general election of Senators, as opposed to their selection by the state legislatures. This removed the only practical check on the federal government which the states had. The federal government has grown unimpeded since.
