    Our Constitution didn't last 3 lousy years. We were far safer under the Confederation. Washington used Federal troops to put down the Whiskey Tax rebellion.

    The constitution lasted longer than 3 years. The big difference was the Whiskey tax was placed on the Union by the Union, not was taxation with representation. It is unfortunate that there is taxation in the first place.

    The only way to change it, now, it to organize a new revolt.
