Why We Fight
This recent column by Instapundit Glenn Reynolds is a must-read, and contains the following key paragraphs:
...The United States Code -- containing federal statutory law -- is more than 50,000 pages long and comprises 40 volumes. The Code of Federal Regulations, which indexes administrative rules, is 161,117 pages long and composes 226 volumes.
No one on Earth understands them all, and the potential interaction among all the different rules would choke a supercomputer. This means, of course, that when Congress changes the law, it not only can't be aware of all the real-world complications it's producing, it can't even understand the legal and regulatory implications of what it's doing...
If anyone asks you why we want to Restore The Constitution, that's the answer.
Whatever the Leviathan described and empowered by those 266 books and more than 210,000 pages of laws and regulations actually is, it most certainly is not Constitutionally-limited government.
