It's not either-or. The government we have now is not the Constitution's fault. It's the people's fault for not taking a stand. Any written document is powerless on it's own. The people themselves have to defend the Constitution in order for the Constitution to defend them.
“The strength of the Constitution lies entirely in the determination of each citizen to defend it." ― Albert Einstein
“It is not our part to master all the tides of the world, but to do what is in us for the succour of those years wherein we are set, uprooting the evil in the fields that we know, so that those who live after may have clean earth to till." -J.R.R. Tolkien
