Read and Weep

            Read and Weep

 Guess who and when?  “If Congress can apply money indefinitely to the general welfare and are the sole and supreme judges of the general welfare, they may take the care of religion into their own hand, they may establish teachers in every state, county, and parish, and pay them out of the public treasure; they may take into their own hands the education of children, establishing in like manner schools throughout the Union, they may undertake the regulation of all roads, other than post roads.  In short everything from the highest object of state legislation down to the most minute object of police would be thrown under the power of Congress.”  James Madison, 1791
