Food for Thought

An interesting question:
Would the founders -- whom our government celebrates today -- have tolerated the government we have now? As Cowen notes, we rose up and revolted against a government that was far less intrusive, invasive, and -- at risk of hyperbole -- tyrannical than the one we have now. My guess is that alcohol prohibition alone would've been enough have Payne or Jefferson calling for arms. Never mind the New Deal, the Great Society, or today's encroaching police state.
