In order for a contract to bind me...

Yes, I must approve it. That is freedom.

Anything else is exercising illegitimate power over me.

If the people must protect themselves from excessive force, then the document does nothing. Protection is either successful or a failure. A body guard does not get points for "trying" to protect his charge.

If something exists solely for the purpose of protection, and yet fails to do so (so completely), then in fact, that is the purest definition of failure so it is the fault of the constitution.
