The constitution has enumerated duties for the Fed. The founders had stated that it was obvious but then later made the bill of rights amendments not to magically make more limits on the fed but to help reclarify what they ment to the progressives of the day. For all rights come from our creator, The sates are our second government body by importants the first being the People (our selves) a contract between two people. Last and the one with the least hold over our lives is and was the Federal government. Sad but now with drowns our very lives are now allowed to be snuffed out by fiete.
