As many political scientists point out, the debate regarding federalism still exists today in the form of centralists and decentralists arguing about the size and scope of government. Those who are centralists favor more national action in regards to solving problems. Those on the decentralist side of the debate believe in more state/local action in solving problems.
Which direction do you think the United States is headed in terms of federalism and the centralism vs. decentralism debate? Why do believe your opinion to be true?
