I am not just talking about the commerce clause... A state cannot just build a nuclear reactor, even if they are not going to sell the electricity across state lines, without NRC approval. The EPA can have a say in spills inside a state...
I cant, my state says I must believe in the Lord to hold public office...
Obviously it did to me, but sadly there are lots of people who it would not.
Then dont use the municipal broadband, use comcast....This is not giving the cities a monopoly...
There are lots of things that happen within state lines that fall subject to federal regulations...
you forgot "Oh, you want a free market in sales (such as car)? Can't allow that."
The problem is that, at least in NC, the hypocrisy of the states rights group is large and thick. They dont want federal involvement in state affairs, but the state has no problem taking rights away from the cities, counties and other municipalities, same as they account the federal government.

This is a repeat of 2k9. They laid us off scheduled the 4th of July, but we were removed from our posts on 4th of May, and our access revoked. And while they hired the same number of people immediately the people who were laid off could not apply for 5 months.
Taxation is not theft, you allow it to happen. You have options to avoid it.
So instead of paying taxes to a government that can use volume to make management cheaper, and use the funds for other public goods you pay it to an insurance company, unless you really though insurance costs would not skyrocket for the new services they provide, and in the end you get less value, but the insurance company makes more money.
That is funny, as it was mostly my republican friends that were upset about the shutdown as services they wanted to use were offline.
I am stupid because I dont believe that the employer paid for my medicare when it came directly out of my paycheck? Even if he wants to lay that claim, the same logic would dictate it was not the employer who paid for it but the customer of the business.
