Not so Happy Constitution Day

Happy Constitution Day, citizens. Enjoy it will while we have it. See yesterday's post.

From last year's post:

It's a good day to reflect on the structure of our constitution. Specifically, the fact that the document was intended to constrain the federal government through a number of mechanisms. First, Congress was only granted enumerated powers. Note the amplification of the Tenth Amendment:

The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.
It was never intended that the sweep of federal power would be unlimited. Progressives have attacked this notion for well over a century.
