Actually you're displaying a signpost of a clear lack of understand as to what the founding fathers meant and fought for to provide the freedoms we have. Congratulations on being so ill informed. Enjoy the read.
Here's a snip for you:
The rights of the people come from God. The powers of government come from the people. The American people delegated the specific powers they wanted the federal government to have through the Constitution. And any additional powers they wanted to grant were supposed to be added by amendment.It’s largely because we’ve forgotten these simple principles that the country is in so much trouble.
The powers of the federal government have multiplied madly, with only the vaguest justifications and on the most slippery pretexts.
