On Friday, U.S. Senator Ben Sasse delivered the Federalist Society's 2016 Barbara K. Olson Memorial Lecture. 

Discussing the American idea of limited government, Sasse reminded conservatives that "when people stand up against power and they disagreed with that power, no one’s surprised. They all expected that. What’s glorious is when people believe in limited government and restraint, when we are the ones in power. And we now have the opportunity to model that restraint."
