Given that the Constitution is the law, then what you're basically saying is that "it's pretty idiotic to act like the law was supposed to lay out the entire extent of what government should and shouldn't do."

This allows the coercive powers of government to be unrestrained, opening the door for tyranny. It basically says that the people need to be restrained by law and told what they should or shouldn't do, but the government is somehow above the law.

We restrain governments for a reason. Had governments been restrained in the early colonies, many of the racial tension in this country could've been avoided, as well as other problems.
