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.
