Brooks: Time to Torch the Constitution

Check out the history of abuses to the Constitution (Commerce, General Welfare "clauses", et al) and you will see these groups have been "wielding their way" around it quite a lot. At least until Obamacare however, they drew the line at making these abuses effective at the individual level (even if the 'enforcers' very often overstep the line). We can only hope to get the word out sufficiently, by 2014 and 2016 to undo much of those changes over the past century that led to the abuses of today.

Sorry - I accidentally erased the part where; "It is the Bill of Rights that has protected the citizens of this country from nearly all the abuses heaped on organizations and businesses, though the citizens must always shoulder the costs of these abuses."
