I'm a bit concerned about it, yes -- but I do feel that, perhaps, it would be a good move. It would free up the states to spend far more capital on internal improvements and the like -- I think, truly, it might burden the federal government more than it helps it.
But how do we get the Southern states to sign onto it?
