In all honesty ...

... What is the difference between the State and the Fed.

Isn't it just semantics at this point everything the Fed. dose can,at some point,be done to you by the State. This seems to me like I am being asking would I like to be punched in the mouth or punched in the stomach

I believe our gov was

I believe our gov was structured so that most issues pertaining to daily life was covered under State law specifically in order to get the States competing for our business/citizenship. With the States competing we ultimately should end up with improved governments overall at the State level.

So, basically with States we have the freedom to choose among many different options. With law at the federal level we do not have that same freedom to choose, since no matter where we go in the nation the federal laws (as long as they are constitutional) apply.

It is easier to change bad

It is easier to change bad laws at a local, state level than trying to change bad laws on the federal level. I also don't have to drive as far to toilet paper a politician's yard/ house.

State gov is closer...

(Theoretically) the state government is closer to the People and therefore more responsive. It's next to impossible to change things at the federal level, but actually achievable to change things at the state level.

And if you don't like how one state does things, you can vote with your feet - just like people are doing right now by moving to Colorado.
