I'm still waiting for Trump to hold a press conference and say "Just kidding! It's been fun, but I don't want to actually be president! Good luck!".
I do agree that a lot of our problems today stem from the federal government over reaching into issues that are best left to individual states and local municipalities to adjudicate. Why is someone from Washington dictating kindergarten curriculum and teaching methods? Why does Washington care if my health insurance is worth 'too much'? The list goes on and on and on.
I believe that we are going to start seeing a shift with the states trying to reign in the federal government and take back a lot of the power they have given up.
The senate was originally appointed by states, not elected by the people. If we stopped trying to pretend we are a direct democracy and went back to acting like a coalition of individual states like we used to be, you would probably see a lot of this federal nonsense disappear.
