I would not rely on Mr. Paul, or any government official, to tell me why the constitution was written. The purpose is contained in the document itself:
We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.
That's what it says now what does it mean to you? Can you show me all the new "rights" progressived have found in the old constitution?
