My Beef With the Constitution?

It did not limit federal powers or state powers enough.
Simple as that.
But the fact that anyone set up a country based on a document designed to limit the authority of the state was a damned good thing, and a first as far as I know---the state's existence was a privilege granted by the people rather than the other way around.

Who messed with it and got the tables turned, and why?


  1. Good question. We should know because we studied this in 4th grade and I can't remember....

  2. You might thank Franklin D Roosevelt for that. He set wheels in motion that have made the government the all-powerful, all-intrusive machine it is today.

  3. The "beef"? They put it on the outside of the bun there, now didn't they. Awfully messy to eat - never mind swallow.


Can't make comments any easier, I don't think. People are having trouble--google tries to kidnap them. I'll loosen up one more thing and let's see. Please give it a try
