The Born-Again Individualist Judge

In this article in Reason, Judge Napolitano lays out,succinctly, the myriad of problems with current affairs. As the power becomes more centralized, we will see our rights and freedoms diminish. After all, why would someone in Washington listen to someone a thousand miles away? The problem is too much power in the hands of too few. This is exactly not what the framers of the Constitution wanted. They had a healthy fear of tyrrany.

Unfortunately, we are just idealists, if we believe we'll ever return to the pre-FDR days. Too many have been totally indoctrinated that Federal Government should fix their problems.
