    I agree that the federal government is capable of implementing governing practices and policies that states and local governments cannot. However I personally feel as though there are programs such as medicine or education in which we would be better off if the federal government forces the states to do their job instead of doing the job themselves. There is safety in diversity of done appropriately; not because groups of governments are less corruptible than one government but because it is a system in which we can minimize our failures and share our accomplishments.

    At least in California there have been several corruption investigations on local governments conducted by the FBI. I am very grateful for this service/check they provide for the people. I don’t think that they should be administering as many direct aid/policy programs as they are. They should leave most of it to be administered locally and by the states. It is hard to say where the line will be in every issue but i think we have gone in the wrong direction and that letting them be a watch dog over how the states or local governments implement their own programs would be a better direction to go in.
