The Founding Fathers knew what they were doing when they wrote the Constitution and I believe the Lord blessed their work. To protect our freedom, they gave the federal government limited powers – then they divided those powers between Congress, the President, and the Courts. Then they divided the powers of government again – between the national and state governments.
Today, the federal government’s become more powerful than anyone ever dreamed was possible. In fact, a good part of American history is the story of the federal government growing more and more powerful. But that hasn’t always been wise. And today it’s clear we need to restore checks – and limits – on the federal government’s power.
