The Constitution was designed to guarantee a government of the ruling rich males.
As Noam Chomsky stated in his interview on American History and Democracy:. . . “If you go back to the record of the Constitutional Convention, which took place in 1787, almost immediately after the end of the war, you see that they are already moving in another direction. James Madison — who was the main framer, and one of the Founding Fathers who was most libertarian — makes it very clear that the new constitutional system must be designed so as to ensure that the government will, in his words, “protect the minority of the opulent against the majority” and bar the way to anything like agrarian reform. The determination was made that America could not allow functioning democracy, since people would use their political power to attack the wealth of the minority of the opulent. Therefore, Madison argues, the country should be placed in the hands of the wealthier set of men, as he put it. . . .”
To this day, we have a government and state apparatus that is designed to “protect the minority of the opulent against the majority” — there is no Democracy! It has been endemic to this society to expand westward which included the genocide of the Native Americans.
The Supreme Cout has always been the deciders and admenders of the constitution.The Supreme Court is composed of Judges, who have proven their loyalty to the 1% , and therefore have been appointed by the President of the United States.
One should not have been suprised by the Supreme Court’s Citizens United Decision Holding: Political spending is a form of protected speech under the First Amendment, and the government may not keep corporations or unions from spending money to support or denounce individual candidates in elections. Thus, the Constitution became a codification of government of the 1%, by the 1%, and for the1%!
