The only safeguard against the gubmint is a populace that jealously and vigilantly guards and preserves its own freedom.
You are correct.
I believe that we are heating up to a boiling point in the US.

I'd like to see a group of very good minds in the field of government and republicanism get together and just for the thought bubble experiment of it, attempt to craft a new constitution. Surely there were errors in this one.
As I've said before, don't you think any one interested in limited government would exclude phrases like "general welfare", "necessary and proper", "interstate commerce"? A new constitution would chain them down even further. This one, in my view, is beyond repair. Much of it could be kept in a new one, but it's too screwed up to be fixed by amendment. Like the founders who decided to scrap the Articles of Confederation altogether (without authorization), a totally fresh start would be the only way to try to get it right. And of course, no liberals could be involved in it. They are the disease.
