Federal Overreach is Focus of March 18 Event with AG Sam Olens

Under the Constitution, our Founding Fathers assigned the federal government specific, limited powers. How times have changed.

As Georgia Attorney General Sam Olens pointed out to Congressional lawmakers in 2013, “With increasing and dismaying frequency, constitutional principles of federalism and separation of powers have been set aside in favor of administrative end-routes to a preferred policy outcome.”

Insidious mission creep and overreach now pit states against the federal government and the courts as they are forced to defend their rights. From the Dodd-Frank Act to the ObamaCare Halbig v. Burwell case before the U.S. Supreme Court and numerous cases between, the federal government has whittled away states’ rights, parents’ rights, property rights and individual rights.
