May I suggest that any measure of conformity to the Constitution begin with an assessment of its adherence to the 9th and 10th Amendments? I refuse to believe that most people support the notion that the federal government is supreme or superior in all important matters affecting our lives. The founders clearly enumerated the powers of the federal government in the Constitution because they realized, if left unchecked, it would spread like a tapeworm throughout the nation, extinguishing any semblance of state sovereignty. The states have become mere appendages of a power-hungry, corrupt, out-of-control centralized government that secures their dependence and obeisance by returning a portion of their taxes for their submission.
