The federal government engages in warrantless wiretapping, outsources its management of the monetary system, conducts searches without reasonable suspicion, wages war without formal declaration, shuts down Internet domains without due process, arrests and holds people without formal charges, and interferes in intra-state commerce, among many other things. Of course it operates outside of its Constitutional authority. In fact, the federal government, by its actions, demonstrates that it has nothing but contempt for the Constitution.
Voters are clearly dubious about the size and scope of today’s federal government.
A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that just 39% of Likely U.S. Voters believe the federal government currently operates within the limits established by the Constitution of the United States.
Forty-four percent (44%) disagree and say it is not functioning within those limits, while another 17% aren’t sure.
