The Constitution has failed us. One of the main charges brought by the anti-Federalist was that the Constitution would undermine liberty simply by the creation of a central government. If you go one step farther, there were many that called out the minute word changes between principles within the Articles of Confederation and the Constitution. If you look at how those abuses were setup to allow our government to abuse the General Welfare, Commerce, and Necessary and Proper Clauses you will see why Paul would say it failed.
The very safeguards in the Articles of Confederation were removed and we are stuck with the natural progression of an unchecked, unchallengeable federal government.
