It's ironic? The Democrat/Dixiecrats used to be the champions of state's rights the Repubs are now!


AT a senior center today the Pledge of Allegiance was said which includes "and to the republic for which it stands." Power closer to the people and the businesses that pay the taxes has been a Republican goal for several lifetimes. Well-run states and localities can provide for care that a final American Healthcare Act may not, while other less-well-run states would find that difficult, if not impossible right away. Who won't be covered will ultimately depend on what each state and locality does, and those figures won't be in until they try. States' rights and care live again in our system!

    Us westerners are not and will never be bound by federalism. We are sovereign states. We owe our allegiance to the man or woman standing next to us and not to a soggy bottom mill of hypocrites. That is what a republic means.

    A rather ignoranmt view of life. Let me think here, my great great grandpappy held your view. And he and that group are long long dead. The West shall remain a free society and NY and DC will do their best to make it not true.
