This is the only place where I see the document fail, and really that failing is with the people. It is due more to people failing to undertand that it is the supreme law of the US than any problem with the actual wording--it says clearly that it is the supreme law of the US.
While the Constitution is a VERY VERY important document in the US it can still be changed. And it is the people that can change it. So when you boil it all down it is the people that should control the laws. Nothing else. After all if no one lived in the US then there wouldn't be a Constitution.
As people have said the Constitution is the foundation for our laws. But since it can be changed it is not the ultimate authority on our laws.

In US, we have the institutionalized assumption that entitlements cannot be cut because people are, well, entitled to them. This spending takes place regardless of available revenue, and takes pleace before all other spending is considerd.
Eventually, this will be unsustainable.
No, not really. Any real popular power in Rome was gone centuries before its fall. Rome remained quite strong for a long, long time, and no one was voting anything out of the treasury to themselves, except for Emperors.
