Yes. But the government and most of the party faithful don't see the Constitution as a limit on the national government. Instead they see it as a confirmation of their wasteful spending, questionable foreign policies, and the right of centralization of power in Washington DC

And to question any of the above automatically gets you labeled as some sort of liberal for doubting the all holy party

I don't see a way to stop the growing government at this point. Well there is a way, the same way we stopped the British Crown.

As a country, we have fallen so far away from what the founding fathers expected. If they saw the size and scope of the current federal government, they would take up arms again, all the while chastising us for letting it get so out-of-hand. FDR would have been run out of town on a rail, along with Lincoln, and most presidents from about 1840 on.

What they put into the Constitution was so simple and clear, I really can't understand why it's become so muddied.
