The heart of the matter...

"Our Constitution, which was intended to limit government power and abuse, has failed.  The Founders warned that a free society depends on a virtuous and moral people.  The current crisis reflects that their concerns were justified."   

[...]  If the people are unhappy with the government performance it must be recognized that government is merely a reflection of an immoral society that rejected a moral government of constitutional limitations of power and love of freedom.  

If this is the problem all the tinkering with thousands of pages of new laws and regulations will do nothing to solve the problem."

— Rep. Ron Paul, from his farewell address
