"The Vanishing Constitution"

Bill Costello has written an interesting article at the American Thinker,on the "The Vanishing Constitution";
The federal government has increasingly assumed unlimited powers and acted against the will of the people. When they can't legislate, they regulate.

The attitude is: We know you don't want it, but we are going to force it on you anyway. Who are you to know what is best for you? You are just a pesky voter. We are entitled to discount what you say because you cannot possibly grasp our progressive agenda.

Progressives began the gradual erosion of constitutional principles around the beginning of the 20th century. The goal? To impose their superior wisdom on the rest of us

Read the full article here.

While I agree with Mr. Costello in that Woodrow Wilson was no friend to the Constitution,but the destruction of our Constitutional government didn't begin with Wilson,but with Abraham Lincoln.It was Lincoln,who not in a"gradual erosion",but in a cataclysmic event,ripped,shredded and burned the Constitution,by imposing his will by military force on,not just the Southern states who had lawfully seceded,but on the Northern states who remained in the Union as well.
