Fred File – The Friends of Fred Thompson Blog � Blog Archive � On Federalism
A really good reason to support Thompson if he ever decides to stop cutting bait and start fishing. When was the last time you heard a serious Republican candidate talk seriously about federalism? Yeah, all the Republicans pay lip service to it, but that's about all they do. Dubya certainly isn't a committed Federalist. His father wasn't either.
The Reagan comparison gets thrown around too lightly, but Thompson is the first Republican candidate since Reagan who seems to take Federalism seriously. Refreshing to say the least.
