Firestone’s Federalized Government Is Not Working
What is a federalized government?
A federalized government is a government that divides power between the national government and regional governments (or in firestone, state governments and county/city governments) (AKA in real life, we will take the example of america, a federalized government, where there is a national government where there is executive, legislative, and judicial branches in Washington DC, and how there is regional governments like state governments and local governments)
What Is Wrong With City And County Governments?
City and county governments have little to no power. Their city ornaments are usually useless as they are unable to create laws that work for their cities, because state laws have already created laws for them. This means that if a city or a county needs to create a law that works for them, they can’t because the state law will overrule it, and the city and county government law would be overruled by the Supreme Court.
City and County Governments have a lack of power. Almost every single law that is enforced by officers in the county is a state level charge, NOT a city or county level law. This is because state laws have created all the laws that are useful to the state, and this is a problem as the state laws are prohibiting the county / city governments to be able to create laws that work for them, meaning that if a city government wanted to create a law that works for them, it would most likely be prohitibed for the city government to do so, as there is a state law for it already, and state law’s have supremacy over city/county laws. What is the point of having states create every law? States should not need to make traffic laws in cities and other laws cities should have the jurisdiction to make laws on(such as Brandishing or open carrying)
But if theres no road laws in the state level, then won’t areas outside of city jurisdicton have no road laws?
No, the county government can create road laws for areas without a city (for example, non city locations such as greendale or hillview, or any area or road that is not regulated by a city such as FS HWY 98 can have county laws for road laws)
Additionally, the state can create road laws for any area that is not regulated by a county or city jurisdiction with vehicle laws, (Such as the highway for example, where the state can create road laws that are effective only at the highway)
How Do You Fix Firestone’s Federalized Government?
Reduce power in the state level, in order to increase power in the city and county levels.
This would be done by creating legislation and (maybe) amendments, and additionally modification of laws to give power to the county governments and city governments.
Congress would then, be given the job to create “broad” laws that are effective for the whole state, and let county/city governments do specific laws that work for their said jurisdiction.
