In honor of Hurricane Sandy, which has apparently shut down everything on the East coast except fast food restaurants, I give you the Scorpions performing Rock You Like a Hurricane.
Anyone who thinks the Federal government is useless, or too big, or too involved should consider what happens after events like Hurricane Sandy, when the Federal government is the only entity capable of stepping in to provide assistance when the State governments have been functionally destroyed or practically overwhelmed by the enormity of a natural disaster. I know a lot of people want to treat our nation like a confederation of states that has an extremely limited Federal government, but the fact is we tried that model before, and it worked so poorly that the current Constitution, which creates a much stronger and more active Federal government, was put in its place. State governments have a place in our system, but they are subordinate to the Federal government for a reason.
