why you're getting flack here from liberty minded people. anybody here read the anti-federalist papers? i admit, i plan on starting them soon, but i've read a couple online, and they read like prophecy. patrick henry was against federalism. ron paul himself, in his last speech to congress, said that the constitution had failed.
the OP's ideas are not new. maybe, it's a knee jerk reaction, because the government itself is attacking the ideas in the bill of rights.
i agree that rights don't come from pieces of paper. everybody is born with them, whether the constitution is there or not.
however, i do wish we could go back to the proper function of government that the founders intended.
i can't remember who said it, but i love the line, "think like an anarchist, but act like a libertarian."
