DENVER–Constitutional scholar Rob Natelson recently wrote an extensive analysis of common criticisms of the U.S. Constitution, and why they are wrong. The article, published in Complete Colorado, rebuts such claims as the Constitution is “undemocratic” and full of meaningless terms, that it discriminates against women, and that the Electoral College was created to support slavery, among other things. These criticisms, according to Natelson, mostly come from “those who believe the federal government should be all-powerful rather than limited in scope.”
Natelson recently sat down with Complete Colorado Editor-in-Chief Mike Krause to look at some of these criticisms on the public affairs TV show Devil’s Advocate (airs Friday nights at 8:30 on Colorado Public Television). That video is below and is well worth the time.
Our unofficial motto at Complete Colorado is “Always free, never fake, ” but annoyingly enough, our reporters, columnists and staff all want to be paid in actual US dollars rather than our preferred currency of pats on the back and a muttered kind word. Fact is that there’s an entire staff working every day to bring you the most timely and relevant political news (updated twice daily) from around the state on Complete’s main page aggregator, as well as top-notch original reporting and commentary on Page Two.
