From a letter sent by Governor Scott Walker of Wisconsin to President-elect Donald Trump (link is to an Adobe Acrobat document in .PDF format):
The question is not what functions the federal government should give back to the states, but what functions should the federal government have in the first place. The federal government was originally created to be a small, central government of limited powers, with everything else left to the states. Through years of federal overreach, this model has been turned on its head, and now is the time to right the ship. Power flows from the people to the government, not the other way around.
I couldn't agree more!
If Mr. Trump can restore this constitutional balance, he'll be remembered forever as one of the great Presidents, IMHO. Needless to say, it'll be anathema to the statist left, who regard 'Big Brother' as an feature rather than a bug, an asset rather than a liability. Nevertheless, I suspect the Founding Fathers would agree more with Mr. Walker than with the statists.
