We can argue all day long about how we have taken God out of our country. The real problem is that we have allowed our government to be free of the bounds of the constitution and the enumerated powers granted to the federal government by the people. We the people, the theoretical keepers of the authority, have given away our powers in order to make life seem simpler. After all, it is just all to complex for us to understand so we should let the smart people run our lives, right?! We should not be surprised at the state of the union. Our founders warned us time and time again.
