the role of government in our lives today

It seems clear to me that what passes for government today, and for an arguable but lengthy period of time, is dysfunctional.
What I have at the moment, boiled down to as concise wording as I can manage is, I think the role of government *should* be:
1 - Enforce the Constitution. Seems clear.
2 - Manage activities that are most effectively managed on a large scale, such as for instance interstate highways, national defense, etc.
Of course, as we see all around us today, the devil is in the details. But these are the basic concepts.
