    The NY Times admits that it knows that the federal government has abandoned the Constitution (1787) in order to micromanage the economy:

    "In his Constitution Day speech in 1937, Franklin D. Roosevelt professed devotion to the document, but as a statement of aspirations rather than obligations. This reading no doubt contributed to his willingness to extend federal power beyond anything the framers imagined, and to threaten the Supreme Court when it stood in the way of his New Deal legislation."


    Nevertheless, it blames the Constitution for the mess that federal bureaucrats have created.
