A Demurrer

I MUST HUMBLY BEG TO disagree with Jeffrey H. Anderson when he writes to urge that the Constitution be amended to require a limited government.

That is what the Constitution is for — to place limits on government. The governing class, believing they know better than the framers how the Constitution should have — well — constituted our government, refuse to acknowledge those limits. And that’s putting it kindly.

No, Mr. Anderson. What is needed is a constitutional amendment specifying penalties for government officials not hewing to the clear text of the Constitution. Draconian penalties.

Incentives, doncha see.
