Sound familiar with speeches we have been hearing about the role of gov't in the past few years.

 speech by Roosevelt Osawatomie, Kansas - August 31, 1910.

an excerpt;
The American people are right in demanding that New Nationalism, without which we cannot hope to deal with new problems. The New Nationalism puts the national need before sectional or personal advantage. It is impatient of the utter confusion that results from local legislatures attempting to treat national issues as local issues. It is still more impatient of the impotence which springs from over-division of governmental powers, the impotence which makes it possible for local selfishness or for legal cunning, hired by wealthy special interests, to bring national activities to a deadlock. This New Nationalism regards the executive power as the steward of the public welfare. It demands of the judiciary that it shall be interested primarily in human welfare rather than in property, just as it demands that the representative body shall represent all the people rather than any one class or section of the people.

I will need to agree with this portion.

"just as it demands that the representative body shall represent all the people rather than any one class or section of the people."

I think the federal government has it's nose in far too many places that it doesn't belong and has no authority to be in.
