What is the Role of the Federal Government According to the Founders?

One of the largest issues that divides the Left and Right sides of the political spectrum is the scope and responsibility of the federal government. Any fair minded comparison between the philosophy of the Founders and that of the present day would be forced to acknowledge that we have drifted quite far from the beliefs and assumptions which underlie the Constitution.

The political principle promoted especially in Part 4 of this article, is at odds with the ACLU and other organizations that want to sever all connections and special benefits afforded to religion.
