The Constitution was too weakSubmitted by atrickpay on Mon, 09/15/2008 - 18:00
Anyone else think the libertarianism of the Constitution has been over-romanticized? Butler Shaffer writes:
"The specific grants of power to Congress are then spelled out in Article I, which include, among others, the "Power to lay and collect Taxes, Duties, Imposts and Excises, to pay the Debts and provide for the common Defence and general Welfare of the United States."
How do such words limit governmental power? What more would any tyrant need to justify his actions than these?"
