If only the Federal government hit high level governing on things like Defense as they are supposed to and allowed the states to determine the rest as it was designed. Then you could actually have 50 choices in how you live while still being American.
[QUOTE=chiefst2000;4418217]The President is the leader of the free world. He can get Senate Democrats to pass whatever budget he wants. You are intentionally covering your eyes on this one.
