Walter E. Williams: The Constitution

June 18, 2015

Thomas Jefferson summed up not only the purpose of the constitution, but also what he thought of Government in this quote; “The two enemies of the people are criminals and Government, so let us tie the second down with the chains of the constitution so the second will not become the legalized version of the first.

In this short video Walter E. Williams talks about our constitution.

Here is an excerpt from the video.“…the language of the Bill of Rights says, “congress shall not infringe, congress shall not disparage, congress shall not prohibit,” I mean all this distrust for congress. Because the founders knew that Government was the enemy of mankind… I point out that when we die, and if at our next destination, we see anything like the Bill of Rights, we know that we are in hell! Because a Bill of Rights in heaven would be an insult to God.”
