Does Your Great-Uncle Control Your Family's Grocery List?
Suppose your great uncle, we'll call him Bob, is a master's degree dietician and accountant. He is a sharp fella. He sends around an email to his kids' families and all their cousins, including you, that he is offering to improve your family's budget and health: all you have to do is let him do all your grocery shopping and of course, give him the grocery money.
Would you let Uncle Bob have complete control of you family's grocery shopping?
Think about it: he's a diet and financial expert. He'll save you money AND bring your family healthy food. What is there not to like?
You consider saying "Yes, yes, that will make life easier and better! The bathroom scale and bills will see lighter days! Thank you, Bob!"
Instead of YOU (or someone else in your household) making the decisions on groceries for the whole house, Uncle Bob, who lives 1,000 miles away, will order the food for you.
This is one way to think of the federal governmet vs state government. The person who originally did the grocery shopping for your family was like the state government. Uncle Bob is like the federal government.
So, would you agree? Do you think Uncle Bob could do a better job than any of your cousins or siblings do for their families?
