Too much power in Washington and in Executive branch

A healthy government is accountable to its people. There is too much power in Washington, centered too far away from the lives of everyday Americans. An all-powerful government centered in Washington has eroded the separation of powers in a way that is corrosive to our Republic and our Constitution. The Executive Branch now routinely creates major rules and regulations that have the force of law, adjudicates disputes, and issues fines--all on its own. Article I of the Constitution clearly states that all legislative powers belong to the people's representatives in Congress. Power should be shifted back to the States where it is closer to the people to whom it belongs.

Place federal power into hands of the people & states

McMullin criticized the over-bloated federal government, citing a statistic in which Americans listed "the government" itself as one of the largest problems facing the country. McMullin suggested that an over-bloated and incompetent Fed was responsible for the popularity of a controversial, non-traditional candidate (the Donald) and a socialist (Bernie Sanders) in the current election cycle.

"The future of the Republican party," McMullin claimed, lay in placing the power of the Fed back into the hands of the people and their relatively responsive state governments. McMullin noted in passing that this would not be accomplished by a program of free college for all, but would be better served by modernizing and refashioning the American education system so that it was more practical and less expensive.
