Cuccinelli nails it on federalism...

... in his brilliant op-ed in the Washington Examiner. He lays out the basics of why federal power is limited, and why any sort of "individual mandate" is illegal and unconstitutional. THIS is why I worked for him, putting out signs, making calls, etc. That's actually extremely unusual for me to explicitly support a politician. Now that he's been elected to statewide office, he's rewarding my faith.

In stark contrast, read this Politico article on the same issue from Tuesday. Waxman is so impossibly arrogant. He, along with avast majority of Congress (both parties), just don't get it. They think "federalism" means supremacy of the federal government in all things, all the time. Please, people, TRY and read the Constitution, The Federalist Papers and the Anti-Federalist Papers before you run for public office.

Go, Ken, go!

EDIT: And Connolly, too, in that Politico piece.
