And I don't see--contrary to Yorzhik's assertion--that my question has been answered at all. Jefferson came back with something like this: "We'd have a constitution to prevent abuses." Well, we have a constitution now, and there's plenty of line-crossing going on these days.
A "constitution" crafted by theonomists--or whatever Jefferson prefers to call himself; don't want to assume anything--would pay the same lip service to liberty that theonomists do in print right now. Any theonomist, whether he happens to be a Muslim or a Christian, pays the same lip service to the public. Once in power, they turn into tyrants. There is no exception to this rule.
