Why Federalism? Thomas Jefferson’s Warning

In an 1800 letter, Thomas Jefferson wrote, “Our country is too large to have all its affairs directed by a single government.”

Today, the federal government really does try to direct virtually all of our affairs – – from what our kids learn in school, to what plants we can grow in our own yards, to how much water we can have in our toilets. This is the kind of micromanaging that the founders warned us about.
