Americans were so opposed to the idea of a strong central government
that they ended up with a multitude of separate governments (state,
county, city/township/village) and quasi-governments (school, fire and
library districts -- and now HOAs as well), all with their hands in our
pockets and some with as much power as -- or even more than -- the one
the American system was supposed to remedy.
