“Properly defined, Competitive Federalism is the powerful harnessing of our tri-partite sovereignty system that allows states to compete with each other over a broad range of issues to provide citizens with the best value goods and services at the lowest cost.

We must move the discussion away from populist promises to raise taxes on certain segments of Americans or to cut government by programmatic picking and choosing to the real issue—where do Americans want the locus of government power over their lives to reside?

Competitive federalism aims to rebalance the powers between the federal government and the states that more faithfully adheres to the Constitution. It is not government itself that is inherently troublesome; rather, it is the misappropriation of power by the federal government that requires action. The antidote is not the destruction of government. It is the returning of power to the states and a proper return to the natural constitutional order.”
