Time Magazine Promotes Tyranny

This Year’s cover for Time Magazine has a picture of the constitution not a famous American as is traditional for the July 4th Issue. Time Magazine’s managing editor Richard Stengel, Asks a question about our Constitution: “Does it still matter?” He concludes that the constitution is irrelevant saying, “If the Constitution was intended to limit the federal government, it certainly doesn’t say so.”

Either purposefully or of ignorance, Stengel completely misrepresents the plain language of the Constitution. “The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.” Those words make it quite clear that the federal government is limited to only the powers specifically granted to it by the people as clearly stated in the Constitution.

Stengel’s editorial makes the same tired claims that have been used to try and justify taking power from the people and giving it back to the elite for well over a century: “When the Constitution was framed there were no Railroads….” or “When the Constitution was framed there were no Telegraphs….” or “When the Constitution was framed there were no Radios….” “When the Constitution was framed there was no Internet….” The constitution was a framework designed to restrain government, and unlike any other government before it, and very few since, gave most of the power to the people not the ruling elite. No technological advances justify taking self-rule away from the people.
