US Constitution was designed to protect the People and the states from the tyranny of a big
national government tyrant .

“Wisdom and good examples are necessary at this time to rescue the political machine from the
impending storm.” George Washington. You are essentially wrong about the purpose of the US
Constitution.  Washington was referring to the economic and political turmoil that the states were
experiencing. I recommend a closer study of the Articles of Confederation and the subsequent
rewriting of the “rules” that governed the national government that the states created.
You might also want to take a look at the philosophy of localism and libertarian anarchism.
