Ironically the current state of affairs wrt left/right politics suggests that the left’s knee-jerk opposition to increased federalism is diminishing the value of its utter regional control in many areas. If you are a political fighter of this ilk, maybe the right jiu-jitsu is to promote increased state and local autonomy. That would be a fascinating turn-about.

Of course a better course of action for all parties would be a return to centrism… a man can but dream.
