I definitely do not think federal mandates mean to run counter to the public policies that the states incubate, but they must at times. The federal government must deliver mandates in order to meet the minimum standards of our goal. If the federal government were not to enforce these mandates the states would have a chance to do whatever they wanted and there would be some pretty severe downfalls from this. The government only wants to ensure our safety, education, sound government. I used an example about education in one of my writings. The federal government must ensure that our children in every state is equally educated by equally educated instructors and/or teachers. This is so important to the future of our nation. There will always be some states that will complain or try to buck the system but that is why there is a minimum standard.
