good article. It's a relief that the actual and correctly understood meaning behind the Constitution and the Bill of Rights is becoming less 'fringe'. Most people think it's a conspiracy theory when you just try to explain to them what is going on in reality, that the Constitution is a compact, which is a kind of contract. The Bill is a bill because the anti-federalists (Mason, Jefferson, Henry/ see Patrick Henrys speeches to the Virginia Convention) had little confidence in a centralized government, and wanted to make sure that they werent signing away their rights if they were going to go to work for this new fed gov. It was 'sending them a bill,' , as in 'you owe us this'; 'you owe us not to take away these God given rights just because we are going to work for you.'It was never meant to apply to the people in the states who were state citizens, because the fed gov had no jurisdiction over them until the 14th amendment, and the creation of the United States citizen. (see Padleford case/ and Barron v. Baltimore). The Constitution is a contract, and we are not party to it it's not our rule book, it's the employees of the fed gov. rule book. The trick was that we all become officers of the state as United States citizens, the creation of which was never the intention of the founding fathers. (see Incorporation doctrine)the article is correct; we don't need any authority besides God to bestow us our rights, period. end of story.

@Admiral America the fed gov was not granted the power to impose public education and compulsory schooling the way i read the Constitution. I don't see that in there.
