250 States

It’s been suggested that we need to break the country up into 250 states: http://www.ideasinactiontv.com/tcs_daily/2005/08/we-need-250-states.html .

My own take goes something like this: say each state has 250 counties, and each county has 250 townships, and each township has 250 subdivisions, and each subdivision has 250 neighborhoods, and each neighborhood has 250 individuals. The same amount of government (enough paperwork managers to maintain  a communications nexus for 250 entities), the whole Federal Government could be cut down to Constitutional size.

When I’m elected: http://rich_grise.tripod.com/cgi-bin/index.pl , I’ll fire every unelected Federal bureaucrat, with three months’ severance pay, and a promise that if things in America don’t improve for everyone in those three months, that they can all have their jobs back at full pay and I’ll resign in abject humiliation and you can all go back to fighting over whether your high muckety-muck wears an “R” or a “D” as the perpetual welfare/warfare state drags us all down into the smoking pits of Hell.
