    Governance refers to the process of running a country or any political unit, such as a state or a county.

    The United States has one of the most desirable governance systems in the world.

    Known as federalism, individual political sub-units such as states have the power to decide on some issues while still answerable to the main authority, i.e., the national/central/federal government.

    This model of government differs significantly from con-federalism, where the central government is subject to the regional government, and devolution, where the political sub-units are subordinate to the central government.

    Article I of the United States Constitution recognizes this power-sharing arrangement between the federal government and the states has sustained democracy for nearly a quarter of a century.

    However, the United States government system has come under threat from the federal government attempting to consolidate power for itself.

    Bureaucrats working for federal government agencies have been passing regulations without following the rule-making process.

    For example, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) has been unprocedurally making laws to ban certain firearms and components without approval from the legislature. The agency has also ignored attempts by states to defend these rights, leading to the Second Amendment Sanctuary movement.

    Similarly, before the reversal of Roe v. Wade, the federal government had usurped the power to make certain decisions, such as the legality of abortion, which are better left to the states.

    Texas and other states passed laws against abortion (similar to the 2A sanctuary movement), eventually leading to the Supreme Court recognizing their right to regulate abortion. This proves that federalism can work perfectly without the federal government’s interference.

    Most Americans do not want an overreaching federal government. Some states want to protect American core values such as limited government, personal responsibility, and a free market economy.

    Additionally, they want to preserve individual rights such as the right to keep and bear arms, protect law and order, the right to life, including the unborn, and patriotism.

    All these values are currently under attack from Leftism, which believes people should give up their rights for the “collective good” and that we should build a more homogeneous society with equality of outcome regardless of the effort.
