Opinion: Mike Lee Speech on Federalism Shows Why FreedomWatch Should Be Brought Back

Utah Sen. Mike Lee, like Kentucky's Rand Paul and Texas's Ted Cruz have added much to the discussion this past semester, but I would like to suggest they misunderstand their forum. As a business model, the Senate today should be looked at as a pirate ship where full and honest discussion is considered seditious and principled management models are eyed suspiciously as cloaking dissent.

In a speech to the Heritage Foundation on Monday, Lee said: "The single most important policy would be federalism," which means making "as many decisions at the most local level as possible."
