Can you really blame them?
The federal government does pretty much what it damned well pleases.
Don't want ethanol in your gasoline? Tough toenails - The EPA will still force refiners to include it.
Don't want your company's health plan to pay for birth control medicines? Too bad - The federal government will still force your company to do it.
Want to make your own decision about whether to buy health insurance? Sorry - The federal government will fine you if don't buy it.
Do you believe that foreign nations shouldn't dictate your domestic policies? Ooops - The federal government will negotiate and ratify agreements with the UN, without any elections, referendums or other public voice in the matter.
Want to make your own choices about what size vehicle you drive? No can do - The federal government will force car manufacturers to build vehicles that meet arbitrary fuel economy and emissions requirements, rather than letting customers decide for themselves what they want in their vehicles.
Do you believe that people should be admitted to schools and universities and be hired for employment based on their abilities, talents and perseverance? Wrong - The federal government will force these institutions to discriminate against certain people, based on nothing more than their ethnicity or sex - all in the name of "affirmative action" and "diversity".
To put it quite simply, some people no longer want to be ruled by a domineering, oppressive and largely unresponsive government.
