It has been a long time coming, but we finally have a president that does not want to strip the states of their freedom. At least in word Trump is saying the right thing for those who are interested in liberty.
At the heart of the liberty that our nation enjoyed the first 150 years of it existence was the right to vote with your feet. There was not this fruitless battle with the most populated cities over liberal nut jobs. If they wanted these nutty high tax inducing policies, they could have them. But the rest of us could escape such foolishness.
Now, that day may be dawning once again.
President Donald Trump promised a large crowd of American governors that he would work to redirect power from the federal government to the states.
“We’re going to give you back a lot of the powers that have been taken away from states and great people and great governors, and you can control it better than the federal government because you’re right on top of it,” Trump said.
As I reported, this has already begun to happen. The president started to send these type of things back to the states. Either by dropping cases or pushing the question back to the state level.
In both cases, this will allow the state legislature and their respective governor to direct the way their states will be governed. This will not just place power back in the states’ hands, but it will bring liberty and choice back to the people.
This will make the whole country more competitive in the world market as the states will once again compete for jobs and industry.
