1) No Ellectorate is "smart"
2) Thats irrelivent!!! American DOES NOT RUN ON COMMON LAW!!! Removal of Barack Obama will not remove his laws!! plus...dont you understand what ive just put above...NOONE in the Federal Government will undo a law which brings them A FREE WHOLE POPULATION INCOME...Why?? Because the Federal Government has a Survival Instinct...it wants to stay exactly where it is, doing exactly what it does...It doesnt want to have its bubble burst and be diminished to a Council full of Guvs who meet maybe once a month for the purposes of Cross Country Transport, Defence from abroad, or the World Stage.
....and I dont think the State Governments would know what to do if someone suddenly gave them nigh on full power over their state again...party politics would become irrelevent...its why the early history of America was littered with Independants...remove the Federal Government...and the whole bipartisanship will likely fall apart...you'll just have hundreds of free thinking people with personal agendas...OMFG..What a breath of fresh air to politics that would be!!
The beauty of the original idea is mindblowing, even given todays standards.
