And there you have it.

Some Things I believe the Fed government can\should do:
3. Health Care
Precisely my point with the health care. That's a pretty massive swatch of federal involvement right there including invasion of health privacy since the govt gets our records.It's socialized health care and administered by hundreds of new bureaucrats including IRS agents to enforce it.
As for immigration, if the Feds don't do it then a state has some rights there as well.
In fact the US Constitution, authorizes Congress just one role in regard to immigration:
Article I, Section 8 says: "(Congress shall have the power) To establish a uniform Rule of Naturalization."
Naturalization. That's it. Plus, it's not even defined.
Defense? You support the idea of starting another war, this time on Iran. That's offense—not defense. They haven't started a war on us. Please, don't give me that line about how we put ourselves in the middle of a conflict first, resulting in an attack. You support intervening in other conflicts using our military. So not you spread the involvement of the federal govt outside of this country to other parts of the world to boot. That's progressive too.
Some Things I believe the Fed government shouldn't do or have less role:
1. Education (should be more up to state and local officials)
2. Regulate marriage
3. Regulate pot
4. Personal choices like what to eat, what to drink etc
That list does not do it. You can easily list those here. But I can go and get posts that show otherwise and do a better job. Furthermore, the Federal gov does not regulate marriage. It's done at the state level. I don't see you calling for abolishing the Dept of Ed either. You came down on the side of Michelle's busy-body lunches and never called for the feds to not be involved in the area at all.
I didn't call for any action I was just laughing at them dummy.
Sure didn't sound like it to me. You insisted that state should not do that.
You left out a lot, that I've seen you otherwise support of the feds, but it would take a long time to get the proof. One is civil rights act of 1964, and that school lunch debate we had regarding what Michelle Obama was doing. I'm sure I could find more. It may be paying for women's birth control, federal govt mandates on health insurers to make it more affordable when it actually increases the price. So you don't support all personal choices. You seem to come down on the side of the incorporation doctrine on social issues instead of leaving them to the states.
Really though, I don't want to digress too much. I just don't see it.
