Ah, the holy constitution

that got us into this mess.

Preamble "...promote the general Welfare..." Which has created the entitlement state. Not to mention that the definition of "welfare" can be ever extended to cover more and more.

Section 8 "The Congress shall have Power To lay and collect Taxes, Duties, Imposts and Excises, to pay the Debts..." Government should not be allowed to go into debt.

"To borrow money on the credit of the United States;" Which has obviously put us into so much debt.

"To promote the Progress of Science and useful Arts..." Government should not be promoting any business or industry in a free market society.

"To provide for organizing, arming, and disciplining, the Militia..." Hmmmm, so congress should control militias? Kinda throws a monkey wrench into the 2nd amendment.

Looks like congress is following the constitution after all.
