…and why the Declaration of Independence is more important then them both:

Johnsson: Do you agree with Ron Paul that we should go by the Constitution and that’s it?

Rockwell: The Constitution would be a major improvement over what we have today. But we need to realize that the Constitution itself represented a major increase in government power over the Articles of Confederation, which would have served us quite well had it not been overthrown.

I’m not impressed by the bunch that foisted the Constitution on us.

They were really up to no good.

We’ve all but forgotten that most everyone opposed it at the time. It only squeaked through once the Bill of Rights was tacked on.

The Bill of Rights isn’t perfect, but it at least had the advantage of spelling out what the government could not do.

In a rather ingenious twist, even that has been perverted: it is now seen as a mandate for the federal government to tell lower orders of government what they cannot do, meaning that it ends up being a force for centralization………………………………..

EXCERPT !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
