government does not have the right to interpret the constitution

At least they were not supposed to. For the first few years there was no judicial review, the supreme court claimed that role later, and congress has never put them in their place. The states were meant to be free to leave the union if the federal government overstepped their bounds. The problem seems to me that our represenatives have never been up to the task of defending our liberties from would be elected executive tyrants, and their appointed lapdog judges
