Lysander spooner is just another hack, like you, only smarter. He doesn;t count.

The Constitution doesn't describe that "consent of the governed" means what you say it does. Quite the opposite in fact.

The "common law of agency" does not, and cannot possibly be a source for that, as it has little relation to the subject.

Show me a real scholarly source, a legal hornbook, one of the federalist papers, caselaw, whatever, which says that "consent of the governed" means that after a law has passed it is up to everyone individually to say whether they consent. Just one.

If you can't, will you please drop it?
