No - The Constitution failed because they put in a new Amendment

At least in the case of the federal income tax, they could not have done it without an Amendment.

I understand that there was no federal income tax before 1913.

But that bastard Woodrow Wilson fundementally changed what this country stood for.

He hijacked our freedom with:

1. The new central bank (Federal Reserve),

2. The new federal income tax,

3. Limiting the size of the House of Representatives to 435,

4. Getting Americans to believe it was our job to "Save the world" with his League of Nations,

5. Getting us into the First World War which had NOTHING WHATSOEVER to do with defending the United States.

So Woodrow Wilson single-handidly RUINED the United States, while FDR, Johnson and Bush (both of them) pounded the final nails in liberty's coffin.

"We have allowed our nation to be over-taxed, over-regulated, and overrun by bureaucrats. The founders would be ashamed of us for what we are putting up with."
