The United States of America prides itself on its democratic government but the power of the federal government todays threatens American democracy The Federal Government should grant states more powers to govern themselves States Rights in United States history advocated the strict limitation of the advantages of the federal government to those powers assigned to it in the Constitution of the United States and reserving to the several states all other powers not explicitly forbidden them The Government has many important jobs to do that effects the whole nation and the rest of the world so if they give the states more power they can concentrate on improving the nation and to promote better living Each state has different needs it should be up to their governor and the citizens to decide what needs to be done Moral and social traditionalists for example who generally have little or no enthusiasm for democratizing much of anything down to the individual level tend to look on state government as a political arena in which important components of their agenda can be more effectively pursued than they can be at the federal level In such instances state-level lawmaking represents not the reduction of government power but merely the more effective use of it It is true that across the country states are grappling for and often winning greater control of how they run a number of other government programs States have gained some powers previously reserved for the federal government but a large part of the cause behind that was that the public had grown increasingly frustrated with the federal governments inability to get the job done Now that many people are putting their trust in State governments they have to prove they can meet the challenges of an increased role in governing Giving more power to the states gives each state the decision to determine what their societys weaknesses are and to invest
