MessageOops. Corrected.

Please note a change in this from previous "power to the states" bills, in that it requires explicit approval by state-wide referenda.

MessageSo even if the people of a state approve this in a referndum, they will not be permitted to create a common social programme by common consent?

This is what we mean by centralizing authoritarianism. Local people are not to be permitted to create anything themselves. The government knows better, and will not permit local people to do as they wish.

MessageLocal majorities should not be allowed to use the power of the government in any way they choose. If they want more nursuries, they are able to do so currently without government involvement.

We feel that the government is not a tool to be used in any way convenient. Government has no ability to do anything except use force, as such its actions should be limited to those where the use of force is appropriate.
