Lieutenant Colonel Douglas J. Lising, USA “holds a Master of Science degree from Boston University. He is a retired Army Lieutenant Colonel with over 21 years of service. In 1988 he and his wife started the company Remtech Services Inc. which was a two-time Inc. 500Fastest Growing Private Company. He has served as an adjunct professor at Thomas Nelson Community College, Chaminade University, and University of Maryland where he has taught business, management and economics.”  Lieutenant Colonel Douglas J. Lising is the author of Remember Roscoe Filburn.

According to the book description of Remember Roscoe Filburn, “Have you ever wondered how the federal government has been able to grow so large, cumbersome, and intrusive? After all, the intent of our founders was a central government with a relatively limited role, particularly in the affairs of citizens and states. The answer is clearly demonstrated in the story of Roscoe Filburn, an Ohio farmer, who was told by the federal government the amount of wheat he was allowed to plant on his own farm, for his own personal use. In its seminal decision in Wickard v. Filburn, the Supreme Court stated that under Congress's power to regulate interstate commerce, personal conduct not involved in interstate commerce, may be regulated as well. And the Congress has been pushing that authority ever since, Republican and Democrat alike, resulting in ever expanding regulations and out-of-control spending. It is time for us to remind Congress, in a permanent way, that the citizens of this country want a more limited central government. This book examines the history of the expansion of Congressional power, makes the case for a Constitutional amendment to clearly specify a more limited role in regulating commerce, and details a method for proposing and ratifying a twenty-eighth Amendment. It is the author's hope that this book will help spur a dialog on this subject among local and state governments and concerned citizens. And in our discussion, always - Remember Roscoe Filburn.”
