One other observation.
The irony of this, to me, is at once enormous and, in many ways, disheartening.
For so many in the libertarian political sect to admire the Constitution as they do, and to call for a return to it and its strict interpretation, shows just how far from the liberty tree American society has fallen.
When the most ardent small-government political sect today is, by and large, merely calling for strict adherence to the wet dream of yesteryear's big-government Federalists, it's safe to say that big government has little to fear but fear itself.
Say what you will about anarchists. I say they represent the last vestiges of the anti-Federalist spirit, whose revival, in my opinion, can't come soon enough.
