Federalism - Is The GOP Giving It Lip Service?

It's amazing how many in the GOP seem to have forgotten the idea of federalism. You know, federalism, where the states decide what their laws will be and the federal government doesn't intrude unless those laws violate the US Constitution? Yeah, that federalism.

But there's at least one member of the GOP out there who still understands what federalism means and is sticking by his beliefs.

I think people ought to be free at state and local levels to make decisions that even Fred Thompson disagrees with. That’s what freedom is all about. And I think the diversity we have among the states, the system of federalism we have where power is divided between the state and the federal government is, is, is—serves us very, very well.

And the person saying this? Fred Thompson, of course.

That moves him even higher up on my list as far as GOP candidates go. But then he's always been at the top of the list.
