From blog correspondent Samer al-Batal
US Constitution Day (today)
by Harry Browne
S al-B: Unfortunately, the failure of the Constitution to restrain government has made some of its admirers, such as Joe Sobran, realise, while respecting the Founders' attempts at creating an effective safeguard and restraining instrument against government tyranny, that it was flawed from the start, in that the government has been able to claim power to interpret the meaning of the Constitution and thus mold it in its own image. Hence, we have seen freak pronouncements and conclusions: abortion as a "fundamental constitutional right" and other such nonsense.
