Centralization of power in Washington D.C. is the greatest threat to liberty.
I recently appeared on the Kate Dalley show to talk about government overreach in the era of COVID-19. Kate noted that a lot of the most egregious government restrictions have come at the state and local level. Why not empower the federal government to keep the states in check? That sounds plausible on the surface, but as I explain, if you empower the feds to limit state restrictions in the midst of a pandemic, you also empower them to impose restrictions. And there is no guarantee that a president favorable to limiting restrictions will remain in the White House.
During the interview, I also talk about about what the Federal Reserve is doing to our money, and the longterm ramifications of all the federal borrowing and spending.
