Constitutions are for Public Servants to Protect and Defend

“The government has total power with only a few "rights" reserved for the individual.” It may seem that way but you are a people with unlimited rights. Constitutions mention a few of the unlimited ones people have and public servants, by their Oaths, are to protect and defend Constitutions.

Preamble to the US and NY Constitutions - We the people ... do ordain and establish this Constitution...; the Revolution, the sovereignty devolved on the people; and they are truly the sovereigns of the country, but they are sovereigns without subjects...with none to govern but themselves... [CHISHOLM v. GEORGIA (US) 2 U.S. 419 (1793); The people of this State, as the successors of its former sovereign, are entitled to all the rights which formerly belonged to the King by his prerogative. [Lansing v. Smith, 4 Wend. 9 (N.Y.) (1829).

Think as a King and you've got it.

“To achieve individual liberty, state constitutions ought to be re-written in a similar format as the federal constitution, with very FEW powers granted to the state government.” It may seem so but "People are supreme, not the state." Waring vs. the Mayor of Savannah, 60 Georgia at 93.

You have unlimited liberty. You can do anything you want as long as you do not injure or cause a loss to anyone else (common law).

“(In addition, we should never allow the government to be in control of our courts, like they are now.)” It may seem so you only have to defend your unlimited liberty in a “court of record,” as most courts are. The proceedings are according to the common law. Statutes don’t apply.
