The Declaration vs The Constitution

Carlos Ball concludes his TCS article on Latin American democracy with:

Latin Americans must face up to the fact that government is the problem. The politicians we have been electing for decades only manage to sink us into deeper despair. The U.N. summits and the IMF bureaucrats will never point the way out. But there is really no hidden secret; anyone can recognize what has to be done by reading and understanding the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution of the United States.

The Declaration is a magnificent document; however, the Constitution conflicts with the core principles of the Declaration, and is in essence, a document of empowerment.
