Rhetorical questions

Had our Founding Fathers really intended to limit the size and scope of the Federal government, what would they have written into the Constitution to achieve this end?

The following words have been interpreted to not restrain Washington's power.
The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.
Could the 10th Amendment somehow be rewritten to limit the power of Congress?

A century ago, these words meant something. If they didn't, the 18th Amendment would not have been necessary.

Under Obama, Pelosi, & Reid, is there any policy that would require a Constitutional Amendment to implement?

Unfortunately, even many conservatives in congress seem to have no idea whether or not they have Constitutional authority for legislation. Call me crazy.
