Was the Constitution a “Con”?

Strict adherence to the Constitution, such as advocated by Ron Paul would undoubtedly result in MUCH smaller government and MUCH more personal liberty. It would be a massive improvement not only on what we have now, but on anything we have had in our lifetimes.

That said, the more I think about it, the more I think that the Articles of Confederation, America’s governing document between 1781 and 1787, was superior to the Constitution.

About Food for the Thinkers

My name is Doug Newman. I live in Aurora, Colorado, just outside Denver. Food for the Thinkers is mostly about the connection between Christianity and libertarianism. Most Christians do not understand libertarianism. And most libertarians do not understand Christianity. Hopefully, this blog helps clear up those misunderstanding. Check out my old page at www.thefot.us And remember: When you let people do whatever they want, you get Woodstock. But when you let governments do whatever they want, you get Auschwitz.
