I would say yes but not because the short comings in the Constitution caused the tyranny. Government is part of the problem but the people are the biggest part of the problem. Had the people listened to the words of Jefferson and remained eternally vigilant we would not be where we are today. Complacency of the people to protect their freedom is the big culprit! As Larkin said if we all stand up and say no the power we are fighting goes away.
