How does the U.S. constitution liberate the masses?
In your opinion, how does the U.S. constitution enable not only American people to be free, but also the U.S. to spread this freedom to other peoples?

The U.S. Constitution is a compact between the Federal government and the States. Pursuant to the Declaration of Independence, government job #1 is securing rights, and job #2 is governing those who consent. The Constitution reorganized the United States, in Congress assembled (which was delegated certain powers under the Articles of Confederation, 1777) into three branches - legislative, executive and judicial.
The unique nature of the republican form of government (not to be confused with 'republic') is that the people are sovereign - not the government. No other government on the planet recognizes the sovereignty of its people. That means, for all the many faults of the U.S. government, it is the BEST on the planet.
However, that was changed by "voluntary" enrollment into Social Security. Since 1935, most Americans no longer have sovereign status at law.
So for Americans to "spread" the real freedom of individual sovereignty, they would first have to stop volunteering to be socialists and restore their birthright of sovereignty, freedom and independence.
However, the entrenched powers that rule this planet will unleash unholy havoc upon America if ever that happened. They fear that such knowledge would instigate riots and revolutions across the globe.
For generations, Americans have been carefully indoctrinated to be ignorant of their lost birthright. But it's still in the public record, in every county courthouse law library, for all to read... if they'd bother to.
"The people of the state, as the successors of its former sovereign, are entitled to all the rights which formerly belonged to the king by his own prerogative."

"In America, however, the case is widely different. Our government is founded upon compact. Sovereignty was, and is, in the people."

"Government is not Sovereignty. Government is the machinery or expedient for expressing the will of the sovereign power." City of Bisbee v. Cochise County, 78 P. 2d 982, 986, 52 Ariz. 1

That's right, America is NOT a democracy, and no majority can violate any minority's inalienable rights... even a minority of one.
Americans were once kings without subjects, awe inspiring to all other peoples.
How far we have fallen.
