Excerpt from 2010 Federalist. No. 01, An Overview
Since the adoption of the Constitution, we have been changing our government through Amendments, Laws, Executive Orders, Bureaucratic Decrees and Judicial Reform. Most of these issues have weakened the power of the States and the people while strengthening the central government. Additionally, we have moved from a citizen government where offices are filled by citizens who do whatever perceived duty they have and then return home to their jobs and families to a government manned by professional office holders. This has further weakened the citizens’ authority and granted that authority in great amount to government bureaucrats and the members of the two dominant political parties that set the rules within each house of Congress.
