Example text

The purpose of this book is to tell the unhappy story of liberty lost, federalism trampled, and Big Government run amok. The United States Constitution established the framework for a federal government holding only specific, enumerated powers. Yet the federal government has actually involved itself or threatened to do so in a vast array of human behavior, nowhere even hinted at in the Constitution. Today the federal government intrudes itself into the blood alcohol level of automobile drivers, the legal drinking age for alcohol, the amount of wheat a farmer can grown for his own use, the ability of a terminally ill cancer patient to grow medical marijuana for personal use, the amount of sugar manufacturers can use in ketchup, rebuilding private homes after hurricanes, regulating steroids in athletes’ blood, regulating the size of toilets in private homes, preventing states from enhancing the freedom of their citizens to join publicly funded groups, using the concept of federalism when it suits the Congress but rejecting it when Congress disagrees, saving banks from the thieves who robbed them, regulating state court systems, and forcing states to increase penalties for state crimes.

Indeed, because of the power of the federal purse strings, states have been coerced into sacrificing some of their sovereign powers. Congress now influences state government to a far greater extent than the Founders ever imagined. EIGHTEEN POWERS In establishing our system of separate powers, checks and balances, and federalism, the Founders limited Congress—and thus the will of the Positivists—to eighteen specific, enumerated, and delegated powers. Those three words are important. Specific means something that is definite or explicitly set forth.

Under Natural Law, if Congress made it unlawful to speak out against abortion, or if a state governor issued a decree that ordered Christians and Jews to cease worshiping, judges would surely invalidate those acts even if there were no First Amendment protecting freedom of speech and religion because the right to speak and worship as we wish comes from our humanity, not from the government or from the First Amendment. Because of that, judges can enforce those rights—regardless of the misguided will of Congress or a state governor.
