small but strong federal government

To avoid charges of plagiarism I credit this guy
Libertarians ignore the clear intention of The Founders to erect a national government that did not previously exist, and vest it with powers that are ample, extensive, strong, and supreme, in order to preserve the Union. They rejected laissez-faire capitalism in favor of national government regulation of interstate, foreign nation and Indian tribe, commerce. The Founders believed this was absolutely necessary to preserve the Union. I see alot of references that don't list this among the powers of the national government. You can't consider yourself a supporter of The Constitution and pretend that very important grants of power in Article 1, Section 8, don't exist.
