I totally agree with Countable member "Operaman" on this issue! No federal grants and DEFINITELY no federalization of our police. At least 30 police departments have sold out to Obama for federal money. That means they have to kowtow to the POTUS. That is the way (or at least one way) to lose your sovereignty!
States, local governments, and individuals should guard their sovereignty assiduously! The Founding Fathers fought a bloody war to gain it. Why would any American want to support a feudal system or a Communist system?! Don't Americans value FREEDOM anymore?
I once said that federal grants come with strings attached; I was wrong. FEDERAL GRANTS COME WITH CHAINS AND SHACKLES ATTACHED!
FUND YOUR OWN POLICE OFFICERS!
