A Government of Limited Power, Losing Restraint

“When all government, in little as in great things, shall be drawn to Washington as the Center of all power, it will render powerless the checks provided of one government on another and will become as venal and oppressive as the government from which we separated.” – Thomas Jefferson

“The constitution is not an instrument for the government to restrain the people, it is an instrument for the people to restrain the government – lest it come to dominate our lives and interests.”-Patrick Henry

Just a few questions for any reader of these wonderful quotes. Is the government being used as the Founding Fathers designated in their writings and the US Constitution? Is the government today using it’s citizens up to gain power, wealth and prestige of men; against the plan of God as shown in the revealed and inspired US Constitution? If men are using government against God’s laws they cannot be on God’s side, and need to repent to realign their allegiance with their Heavenly Father.
