Today we often hear of the populist position that size of government must be reduced. Yet we rarely hear from anyone arguing that government should be larger.

(Hint #1: Think about the problems our nation’s leaders experienced with the Articles of Confederation.)
(Hint #2: Consider the powers shared by the federal government and states.)
