A lot of America's federal powers are exercised at state level here.
I didn't know that, so I guess that shows it can work.
however, my point was more about the influence that corporations have on legislation in America, and I feel that without proper regulation, (that half of congress wouldn't be willing to support) state level enforcement would be easier to influence.

I would like to see a big effort put into removing the money from politics. the Republican party is certainly not in the best shape, especially recently with the tea party starting to splinter off, but getting rid of the money might fix some other problems. honestly, they probably both need to be done, but I really can't see it happening for a while.
