The constitution takes less than 30 minutes to read and readily outlines the responsibility of the Federal Government. Our nation was founded on principles of self governing. Government employees were originally called public servants. Lately, citizens are viewed as servants of the government. Totally upside down. Outside of immigration, national defense, foreign relations, and a few other issues, all other issues are to be handled locally by the state, county or city. For example, The federal education department should not even exist. Most of our children today could not pass the High School graduation test that existed 100 years ago. We are not wards of the state, we are children of our Creator, who we are accountable. That's why we have "In God We Trust" on our money. Faith in the Biblical God is essential to the preservation of our nation.
