In this episode of Thoughts from Maharrey Head, I tell you how we can limit federal power based on James Madison’s blueprint.
The federal government exercises seemingly unlimited authority and inserts itself into virtually every area of our lives. But the feds were never meant to have this kind of power. As James Madison asserted in Federalist #45, “The powers delegated by the proposed Constitution to the federal government are few and defined.”
This raises an important question: if the federal government was intended to remain limited, what can we do to ensure it stays in check and within its intended sphere of authority?
We’ve tried voting the bums out, calling Congress, and depending on Courts to protect us over and over again, while the federal government grew more powerful and intrusive.
In this week’s podcast, I tell you how we can actually rein in the feds based on the blueprint provided by James Madison.
