Comment: The People Failed

(See in situ)

The People Failed

Either the Constitution permitted our massive government (by means of welfare, commerce, supremecy clauses etc - I would disagree) or it has been powerless to prevent massive government.

I would argue that the law was good, but since law is powerless in enabling people to be lawful and uphold that law, it is a failure. But at the root of the matter, it is the people that failed.

"You must be frank with the world; frankness is the child of honesty and courage...Never do anything wrong to make a friend or keep one...Above all do not appear to others what you are not" - Robert E. Lee, CSA
