Why have a Union at all?
I asked this on a different thread in response to a statement that States should have been prepared for a pandemic.
I’m interested in people’s thoughts:
If every State should fend for itself, and every State should have thought about its own stockpiles and should obtain its own supplies, what do we have a centralized federal government for?
What IS the federal government’s function if it ISN’T assisting the States in a health emergency?
