Right now, for anyone living in a blue state, that sounds like an increasingly sound notion, does it not? But of course when conservatives over the years trumpeted their states’ rights, there was always an ugly agenda behind it (racism, pollution, crony capitalism, etc.). As I mull it, I tend to think that the ideal is to have a strong federal government run by the right side. Why let individual states go retrograde?
I suppose it could be argued that as long as people have freedom to move, it allows us to avoid having some mass of people in other states who don’t know us tell us how to live.
