Federal Government Has Taken On Too Much

Because the federal government has inserted itself into so many aspects of our lives and into so many domestic responsibilities entrusted by the Founders to the states, it can no longer focus on the very duties assigned to it under the Constitution.

While spending countless hours taking over banks, automakers, and health care, managing charity, bickering over the philosophical aspects of immigration, inserting itself into education, and so on, the federal government is stretched thin, so thin that it is proving itself incapable of handling even those narrow functions that it constitutionally is required to perform.

Chapter 7

After I read the title of this particular chapter, I didn't hesitate to buy a copy of the book. I have to interact with the Federal government on a regular basis for my job and my experiences with the Obama administration have been unbelievable. When I tell my friends and family here in Texas about these experiences, I really don't think they fully understand just how bad it has been since January 2009. My peers in other states sure do understand; however. They are experiencing the economic nightmare we have largely been spared in Texas. Considering the economic hardships around the country, the Feds never cease to amaze me with their over-reach and their unfunded and unsubstantiated mandates. I look forward to reading the Governor's book and may have to pick up a few extra copies for Christmas gifts!
