Which version of federalism do you prefer, cooperative federalism or dual federalism?

I think we should scrap the constitution and bring back the Articles of Confederation.

Good times!

RJ this poll has nothing to do with the Articles. It has to do with how we want our federalism to operate.

That's a nice straw man you have there. ;)

Regardless of how we think our federalism should be, let's first make each state responsible for its own fiscal well-being. When my state gets 78 cents for every dollar paid in so that sponge states can exist, then I think this discussion will be moot.

I agree with that.

And yes I'm fully aware of which states are "sponge states".

I would like each state to support itself and for there to be no transfer of wealth between them. Let's do it.

RJ, does this mean you're now against federal social programs? I hope so.

The constitution established dual federalism.
