Best Way I've Heard it Put Yet

This morning, during my brief stint in the car, I heard Glenn Beck talking about the proper role of government. Now I know he got it from somewhere else, and I would not at all be surprised to see this idea come up in the writings of the founding fathers... but he said basically this:
That the government should not have the right to do anything an individual doesn't have the right to do.
Talk about distilling it down to fit in a nutshell.

It sure fits my philosophy. I've yet to come up with an example where this principle wouldn't apply.
