Have a little problem ... I understand where you're coming from iszlq and agree that certain matters should be left to the States. But what bothers me most is that certain matters should not be decided only within a State. Too often State and local governments are even more susceptible to corporate pressure than the Federal Government. And, lets face it, there are a number of social and environmental issues we'd still be faced with if it were only up to the States to deal with them.
