I believe it's difficult for people to understand because the scope and purpose of the Constitution is no longer understood.

Because people are taught that government is The Answer, not The Problem.

Because people no longer understand the the free market is the avenue to address disagreeable practices, not the courts.

Because people believe its ok to look me in the eye, shake my hand and sign my contract, with no intent to ever abide by it, because my contract is "dishonorable".

These things, taken separately, seem somewhat unrelated but they're not, they feed from each other and lead to each other. They are the cause of these problems. Not the only causes, but a big part.
Still happily answering to the call-sign Peetza.
The problem, as you so eloquently put it, is choice.
