While I appreciate the well written article and the point it tries to make, I suggest the author go back and study more about the Founding Fathers.  They were not a monolithic group interested in securing liberty and freedom.  In fact, they ranged in opinion and world view from market anarchists who just wanted to be left alone (Tom Paine and Sam Adams) to law and order "good government guys" (John Adams) to limited government utopian dreamers (Thomas Jefferson)  to imperialists who wanted their own empire (George Washington, Alexander Hamilton) The compromise they settled upon, the Constitution, was and is a fatally flawed document with loop-holes big enough to drive a division of tanks through.  These flaws were partially mitigated by the Bill of Rights.  However, with the rejection of state nullification and the assumption of the Supreme Court as the ultimate arbiter of what is and isn't constitutional, our fate was written. 

The author talks about how the Founding Fathers risk(ed) their lives to bring forth the most highly evolved form of government in the history of man, and still is to date, a Constitutional Republic. True.  But that Republic is still a government--the "legal" monopoly of the use of force in a given geographical area.  Since the initiation of violence is evil, what the Founders actually achieved is to institute a more pure form of evil.

The solution is not a return to the constitution.  This is impossible.  but even if it were possible, and our generation succeeded in limiting government again, it would only be a few years until the "limited" government was up to its old tricks again, expanding its size and oppressing its subjects.  The only solution is the absense of government entirely.  And that can begin right now.  All you have to do is 1) Realize that violence is evil.  2) Peacefully refuse to submit to violence or to use it.  3) Withdraw individually from the State.  It's what anarcho-capitalists mean when we say "Declare YOUR independence."
