We have to many laws. We need to prune the federal power overreach and give power back to the states.

As someone who lives in North Carolina, we've proven, without question, that states need to be kept in line and cannot be trusted to create just laws. States get drunk with power rather quickly. Just look at the last two years in NC....

The Federal should step in to protect Constitutional Rights and what it can regulate at the federal level given to it in the constitution, namely infrastructure and interstate commerce, such as large businesses and how the practice with various states. As for state issues, that should fall on the blame of the people for not getting involved. It's easier to get into state government and enforce liability to it's citizens but the citizens need to be motivated to do so.

No. I rather have more freedom to choose more politically diverse places with what you would consider "injust" laws. And isn't diversity important for lefties?

TSA, CIA, FBI, DEA, ICE, IRS, DEEP, DOD, DOE. Not even close to all of them, looks like it could use a couple more arms.
