Does Anyone Know How to Govern?

With all that we have seen occur at the national level over the last, let’s say “50 years,” it became obvious to me that the nation is not being governed by Foundational Principles. I came to this conclusion a long time ago but could not put my finger on it other then what I’ve discussed in my presentation “From Covenant to the Present Constitution (The Tale of Two Constitutions).” Yet that is a complex answer to what I think many are looking for in a simple rational.
With how the national government is acting one has to wonder if anyone knows how to govern? My conclusion is ‘NO’ because they are not functioning as intended under Federalism.

I’m not going to go retroactive to that point but I will take us back just over 100 years and what I’ve been discussing on my radio program regarding Edward House and his pseudo auto-biography “Philip Dru: Administrator.” Continue reading
