Power corrupts...which is why the US Constitution was designed to hold the rights of the individual above all else.

A very accurate observation. Compelled compliance, victimless crimes, license, larceny with impunity and acts against inalienable rights are all examples of the quote. A once free land of the free and home of the brave has been turned into a statist theocracy of gods and slaves under such principle.

Time to change the guard. Our Constitution is not a respecter of persons ! Such an amazing document of sound doctrines !
