Federalism - Good for Liberals, Too!

Here's an interesting piece in today's Seattle times, where a liberal columnist comes alive to the fact that states are the better platform for a whole bevy of policy issues he prefers. Well - no freakin' duh!

While those of us in the Federalist Society tend to favor more conservative or libertarian policies, our biggest and uniting concerns are structural. Our federal system allows 50 simultaneous experiments with environmental policy, health care, crime control, marriage, etc. That means that a good idea can be adopted and adapted, and bad ideas don't infect the rest of the nation. Liberal or conservative, an adherence to the original design of the Constitution benefits us all.
