I believe The Founding Fathers knew what they were doing when they wrote the Constitution and I believe the Lord blessed their work. To secure our liberties they divided the powers of the federal government between Congress and the President and the Courts. Then, in addition, they split the powers of government a second time -- between the national and state governments.

Today the federal government's gotten so big there's hardly a thing Washington wants to do that it can't do. A good part of American history is the story of the growth of the federal government at the expense of the states. But that hasn't always been good and today it's clear we need a check -- a limit -- on the federal government's power more than ever.

It wouldn't be a bad idea to give the states the power to tell Washington now and then, no.
