It is my contention, and that of many libertarians, that the Constitution is a document granting certain limited powers to the federal government, and that the Feds only legally have the powers specifically delegated to them in it.

You and I agree on your interpretation of the Constitution, Starchild.
  However, the Feds have stretched the "general welfare" clause to
include all kinds of stuff, including public education. But, trust
me, I see your argument, and that of the others, that we need to be
consistent about no Feds, no taxes, no stretching of the Constitution.
