I know this post will shock some of you but some things are just do not fall under the authority of the Federal government. Sorry to say but health insurance, education, marriage, food, housing, and other thing like the such is not a power the Federal government has. When the States created the Federal government they gave it few and well defined powers. Any power not given to the Federal government is a power of the States. How hard is it for some of you to understand this?

cool, let's drop the food stamps, the unemployment, the hud, the schips, the chips, the wic, the heap, and well, let's see how businesses from mc donalds to your favorite grocery store handle having a labor force consisting of mainly "students" and those who are primarily just interested in adding to the primary breadwinner of the family....after a good portion of the current labor can no longer work for such low wages!! and well, come to think of it... another thing they don't have authority over is all those small business loans, those educational grants and gov't backed college loans. nor should they have any concern over weather or not there's a cure ever found for any disease or doctor's to treat them, so hey, we can stop funding that one. fha?? nope sorry, you little states find a way to solve your housing problems! just broadening the picture a tad out from just the social programs here.

Sounds like a good idea to me. Get the government out of our lives and back to it's limits.

Yes - drop them - from the federal government. These are issues that should be dealt with locally. Is it really appropriate to say that people in every part of the country deal with exactly the same issues, and they can be resolved in exactly the same way? Instead of the federal government stealing each taxpayer's money to send off somewhere else, let me keep my money, so I can donate to local programs that help with the issues that are occurring in my community. You think it's the federal government that cures disease? Really. fha - if the federal government wouldn't take so much of my money, my state *could* use more of it to fix the problems that occur in my state. (Except for the fact that my state happens to be Illinois, and now we all have had a chance to experience a Chicago politician.) Ummm... ok, that would be another example where one solution doesn't fit every place in the country. In Illinois, I'd push for more local programs, not state programs. I'd love to see Chicago have to learn how to fix it's own issues without draining the rest of the state to bankroll it.

Well being that it is not the Federal government responsibility to be conducting such activities then yes they should cease such activities. I cannot understand why that is such a hard thing to grasp.

It makes sense to me. I read a sci-fi novel once, where there was a guy stationed at a remote ourpost in far-distant space. Each time he started his shift, watching for hostile aliens, he had to read the directives: which included if he ever does see a hostile immediately destroy all documents, the base, and himself. There was retinal scanning software that made sure that he actually read the directive every time, and didn't just hit accept like it was a EULA. Congress needs something similar. They should read the Constitition, the Bill of Rights, the Declaration of Independence, and Common Sense at least every week that they're in session. Our forefathers wanted the closest government to anarchy that still guaranteed personal safety. It's not hard to understand.

I will second the opinion that these documents should be required reading.

Most people are too damn stupid to know this. These are also the same morons who voted for Comrade 0bama and belong to the Dumdasss Party. It's like they never even heard of the Constitution, much less read it. Liberalism is indeed a mental illness.
