I am not a student of history as I wish I were, as it would severely impact my FR online time, yaknow. ;-]

Imagine what a world we would live in today if such men as Jefferson were in command of a limited government today.

Man's greatest follies are fed by the beliefs that with more laws and regulations, we can be governed more fairly, yet, in the end, we are only governed more absolutely.

Imagine what a world we would live in today if mediocre men were in command...and followed the exact meaning of the Constitution. In particular, imagine what would happen if the Ninth and Tenth Amendments were simply enforced uniformly without 'interpretation' or exception.
