    Parties are the largest part of the problem.

    The fact that most politicians are more interested in getting their party more power rather than abiding by any actual principles is definitely part of the problem.

    The constitution just isn't specific and clear enough.

    The general welfare and commerce clauses, for example, are interpreted, and by virtue of such, we'll never have limitations because one could literally interpret to infinity.
