The Final Death of Federalism


Federalism is the idea that the States and the National Government will share power along designated and clear lines. But from the earliest days of the Republic, that line has been blurred and smudged until today, it effectively no longer exists.

Kristin_Olsen_PictureSo when a GOP Assemblywoman stands up to support a tax increase that will further tilt the balance of power towards the Federal Government, it is fair to ask, WHAT IS KRISTIN OLSEN DOING? And to ask “Why is she doing it?” Is it for altruistic and worthy reasons and aims? Or is it for a personal political gain?

In the end, the original goal of many of the Framers of the Constitution was to put the national government in a position to not have to share power with the State Governments. So is it a bad thing that Federalism is all but dead and facing yet another nail in its coffin in California?
