Not as much as I disagree with local spending as I note we had serious problems there in a lot of areas which led to it moving away. We must understand that before we start just making those generalizations. Local governments have not been perfect either. And even if we agreed to move more back that way tomorrow, we'd have to address those past problems.
No, of course local governments are not perfect but at least people have more control then when they are a thousand miles away.
We can see what happened with Solyndra and now with Sunpower. It's either corruption or incompetence on a grand scale, as it is the Fast and Furious program, but if this was local the people could do something about it. As it is, te American people can do very little. There might be a resignation or two but with billions, or trillions, of dollars gone, it really doesn't matter.
