"It was always for our own good. It was always for a very good reason. It was always within the American tradition of this, that, or the other. That’s what they’ve told us, that’s how they’ve patronized us, for generations, as the long tendrils of the federal government have spread and multiplied into every realm of American life. ... But Judge Henry Hudson was very serious when he ruled that the Constitution created a federal government of 'enumerated powers,' and that limits on those powers have continuing force." [editor's note: Now and then, Ms. Charen reminds us that beneath that troglodyte conservatoid front, lurks an appreciation of liberty. This is one of those times - SAT] (12/29/10)
