Gross Ignorance About The Founders And The Feds

"The powers delegated by the proposed Constitution to the federal government, are few and defined. Those which are to remain in the State governments are numerous and indefinite."

James Madison, the acknowledged father of the Constitution.

"The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people." 

The 10th Amendment.

The above, and more, have been entered into the record so as to enlighten the simpletons who've been poorly educated about our Republic and the truly minuscule powers of the federal government. Our system, with regards to the federal level was specifically DESIGNED to be burdensome and difficult to work, as the Founders believed that too little government was infinitely preferred over too much government.

When in doubt, keep it simple. If it isn't in the Constitution, then the federal government has no say in the matter. Period.
