It’s weird to me when someone pops up with “but that’s the local government, not the feds” doing some evil thing or another. Or the other way around.
And I can’t figure out why it matters. Maybe to “state’s rights” [sic] people… but to anyone else?
Government is government. To distinguish between federal, state, and local is to miss the point. Yes, they can all hurt you in different ways, and sometimes you can pit them against each other to protect yourself a little. But to fall for the belief that one isn’t bad, while the other is? Ridiculous! They are all bad, just in slightly different ways.
