    Of course it was. The entire purpose of it was to keep government small while liberals openly stand for the exact opposite/

    The Govt was small because the US was small like under 200K citizens. No planes, trains or automobiles, no military, no foreign aid etc.


    comparing the Govt of the 18th century with the current govt is like comparing a horse carriage to a 767....

    Maybe you should read the Constitution. The federal government has some very broad powers and is supreme over the states.

    The thing you may want to pay attention to is that the Constitution prohibits the Federal Government from trampling on the rights of the Indivdual. Something Conservatives continue to ignore..right to this day. The "Patriot" Act and "Enhanced" Interrogation are clear examples of that.

    Classical liberals (i.e. libertarians), not 20th century Fabian socialist/progressive "liberals".

    You know this and may now cease and desist spreading that half-truth.

    Part of the beauty of the Constitution is it's "Scalability". It's pretty much remained intact for several centuries. This despite the continued and arrogant rants of the right for "Originalist" interpretation. It was funny to watch Republicans actually read aloud the document in Congress. It was a first time for many of them.

    That's a bullshit term created by Conservatives.

    Liberals are not "Traditional" or "Classical". That..is Conservativism. One people, One god, One Country, One King - The Conservative mantra.

    Pure garbage.

    See: 9th & 10th Amendments.

    Lots of fake "liberals" (like you) are all for the idiotic USAPATRIOT Act, Echilon, Carnivore and a whole slew of other police/nanny state agencies that pry into the private affairs of individuals....In fact, the provisions of USAPATRIOT Act were floated by Bubba Clintoon piecemeal, during his 8 years in office.

    Physician, heal thyself.
