Political social, moral, and philosophical issues include religious driven issues, education, healthcare, abortion rights, right to life, gay/heterosexual marriage, gun control, right to work, election funding, and job creation policies. These issues, at a federal level, are chronically unresolved and controversial. As a result, these issues detract and consume too much federal government attention and activity.
Many political social, moral, and philosophical issues cannot be resolved at federal government level. This is because no single set of polices, or laws, can define or satisfy the diversity of 308 million multi-state citizens.
The above hypothesis suggests simple solutions to federal government social issue dysfunction. The federal government separates itself from social policy. Social policy is determined at state and local government levels. The federal government limits social policy involvement and law. Conclusion is controversial social issues, at a federal level, are not governable.
Examples are: State governments decide “abortion and right to life” policy. States decide gay/heterosexual marriage issues. States decide education, gun control laws, right to work, and election funding policies. Local governments administer jobs programs. Controversial social issues are better resolved at state level. Federal government, without social issue legislation distractions, can concentrate on the diversity governance of 308 million multi-state citizens.
States decide controversial social issues. The federal government limits “social issue” legislation and mandate. Citizens benefit from socially diverse choices between states.
The federal government’s role is to support and govern multi-state diversity, not micro-manage it. Confusion in government is largely confusion of federal, state, and local governance domain.
When service in a restaurant suffers, more waiters are needed. When fire breaks out everywhere, more fire fighters are needed. When crime becomes rampant, more police are needed. When democracy morphs to elected oligarchy and America lacks governance, send help to the few surviving democratic representatives. More representatives are needed. More presidents are needed. Democracy disburses power. The antidote to corruption of power is disbursement of power. Step it up, America. Be proactive. Check out plan-b.
Citizen is coach to team democracy. Coach is responsible for success. It’s your call, coach.
