Mixed, or other. To a point. I can understand the government needs in being unlimited by jurisdiction where smaller local governments aren't allowed to leave, lack in resources or abuse of authority within it.

However, when it involves itself in a jurisdiction or issues where it is not needed in the first place is a line that is often crossed repeatedly and unfairly to the detriment of US citizens.

As in so many other cases, the answer is yes but ...

Many factors need to be uniform to allow decent trade, consistent rule application and so on. But there are some elements of governing that are better handled at a local level where local conditions can dominate.

I will use a couple examples [Note: This can be expanded upon if something remains unclear, or otherwise is disagreed with]:

(A) In Academia, there are separate departments with areas of expertise, including researchers, teachers, students, etc. Ultimately, all of these departments are held accountable and must report to the 'father'/strongest department--namely the school administration, who are the final arbiters of what is and is not allowed.

(B ) In basketball, a third-party body that defines rules and regulations that all owners, teams, coaches, players, etc. must abide by. Then, referees and such are employed to ensure that the orders are followed through on correctly, with the power to punish those that disobey.

Centralized government should be very limited.

our founders understood this that is why they wrote amendment 10.

The Federal Government should not have power over anything that is not EXPRESSLY given to them in the constitution.
