The term "limited government" may not be found in the Constitution, but the concept of limited government is established in the Constitution by means of the definitions of the powers of the branches of the Government. Each branch has specified responsibilities and powers, and may not exceed those responsibilities and powers under the terms of the Constitution. In other words, the Constitution says what the Government should do, and that's all it can do. That's limited government.

The Preamble of the Constitution explicitly gives the power of our government to "We the People". The fifth article gives "We the People" the right to amend the Constitution,ergo the government is not limited except by the will of the majority governed.The term "limited government"is illogical and not implied.
