Since Franklin D. Roosevelt’s administration, the United States’ government has become increasingly larger and more powerful. The Constitution, which originally limited the government’s power, has been inverted. How did this happen? What role did the Supreme Court play? And should we return to America’s founding principles?
We discuss these questions with Dr. Roger Pilon, the Cato Institute’s vice president for legal affairs and the founding director of the Robert A. Levy Center for Constitutional Studies.
