Going offtopic for a bit:

I would prefer that the government stick with what the Constitution allows it
to do.  Neither socialist health-care schemes (<sarcasm>which have worked so
well elsewhere</sarcasm>) nor TV-converter giveaways are enumerated in the
Constitution as being within the central government's purview.

Unfortunately, the Constitution hasn't been much of a hindrance to those who
find it inconvenient for their purposes (google "New Deal" or "War on Poverty"
for examples).

"...and that's all I have to say about that."
