When government becomes too greatly centralized, it finds itself carrying a patronage load which ultimately breaks its back. That is the problem we are facing today. The great wealth of the states now goes to the central treasury to support an ever-growing national benefaction in the form of federal aid. The result is federal entry into many governmental fields, and the imposition of taxes to the point where the limit has been reached, and the states find themselves with greatly limited potential resources. The first step in the solution must be to stop federal extravagance.
