This book should be required reading for every citizen.
A formal reading of "Where's the Line" should become part of the opening session for each house of the US Congress.
Mr. Ivory has succinctly reviewed the constitutionally defined roles of federal and state governments. Had our legislators heeded these boundaries over the past few decades, we would not be wrestling with an overgrown, out of control federal government that threatens to bankrupt our nation.
Certainly our Founding Fathers could not possibly have foreseen the many technological, social, financial, and moral challenges of our time. However, they had a remarkable understanding of the strengths and weaknesses of human nature, the dangers and corrupting influences of power, and the need to establish a framework of government which provides the best balance between the need for leadership and national unity with the desire for maximum personal liberty.
I highly recommend you read this book. Purchase a second copy, and give it to your U.S. Representative, Senator, or neighbor.
