Is America Too Big?

Like the obese, 600 pound man who experiences heart failure, diabetes, and dozens of other ailments, so too does America, only its diseases go by the names Debt, War, Entitlements, Gridlock, and Corruption. Our problems cannot be fixed through any change in ideology or bi-partisan agreement in Congress, because those are not the root of our problems. The source is our size. As America's population increases, the level of representation and control each voter has must inexorably decrease. As power centralizes in a federal government, literally out of the hands of its citizens, conflicts and problems mount.-

The answer is yes. Too big for true representative, republican government. Why do some oppose any notion of secession, then? They, in their infantile minds, associate it with the Civil War and the "evil" South. But listen carefully to left-winger Kirkpatrick Sale on the subject of scale.
