US Constitution: Sorry, Horrible FAILURE

No Tex, buddy (see below-copied), the US Const. was a failure, overall, though I agree w. u about the economics, but that came before, fm the Articles of Confederation and general advance of Western Civ., the "enlightenment," which produced an incredible general economic explosion in wealth, as u say, but which was doomed, and finally began to flicker-out in the 30s of the 20th cent., though there was yet more to be squeezed before present satanic times of Agenda-21 and -30 addendum population-reduction and genocide, US gov. pushing poison vaccines, poison prescription drugs, poison GMO foods, poison, fluoridated water, poison "chem-trails," slow-kill genocide--still the program to this day.
US Const. was corrupted quite early in 1832 when Andrew Jackson threatened state of S. Carolina w. the infamous "Force" bill and bloody invasion, barely 44 yrs after institution, the consolidation of the union of formerly free states. U're right that economic advance was sooooo dramatic, the other states refused to support S. Carolina. The TOTAL, absolute destruction of US Const. was in 1861-5, and it's amazing u can't simply acknowledge this simple fact. Mass-murder of a million white people of the South, and probably another million slaves was barely felt as the tremendous US economic machine breezed along to developing the virgin western territories and California.
In 1898, mere 33 yrs after Confederate defeat, there was the outright imperialist war w. Spain, taking of Philippines as colony and suppression of their independence movement, the rest is sorry history, though again u're right about economic advancement. But don't forget, Japan advance economically, under purest fascism in the late 19th cent. to winning the brief Russo-Japanese war of 1904-5. And Germany of late 19th cent. was another instance of authoritarian state which also yet advanced economically. US Constitution was HORRIFIC FAILURE, overall, regardless the economic advancement which happened anyway, for Constitution FAILED to guard states-rights, the foremost defender of individual rights and freedom. And Constitution was NOT "excellent," as u pretend, but rather a decisive step-DOWN, fm previous Articles of Conf., as I noted--certainly INFERIOR to the Confederate Constitution of 1861.

I don't believe so. 100 years ago men like Spooner already knew the country and the Constitution was a failed experiment where liberty had lost its meaning and elites were running amok, with no regard for those they stole both money and freedom from.

A failed experiment? It proved with astounding success that the more liberty a society has (and guards), the more prosperous that society tends to be. Was it perfect? No. Was it excellent (compared to the rest of human history)? Yes.
