There is nothing wrong with the constitution. We just need to get rid of people who refuse to follow it.

Some things are true, even if you dont believe them.

Good, nice to see your lot trying to get your own house in order and trying to be the Christian Nation your demagogues proclaim you to be.

Yea its great. I mean so long as you are cool with collapsing the economy, and in turn destroying the entire worlds economy to the point where no one has anything. Yea, great idea.

Do we give prizes for the most useless comment? because I think we have a winner.

Is it possible that we are on the brink of a new, "modern" Constitution?  Could you imagine a constitution that kept the best of the old and got rid of the horse and buggy language of slavery.  Can you imagine a constitution written in today's hi tech style.


Something like this??


Yo G...wazza. We's the doods of the Funky States, hustling to raise a mo solid gang, are gonna put down sum maddahfakking ground-rules, bringing down the chill in tha hood, packing tha heat fo sure man, taking care of la familia ese, fending tha freedom fo our homies and kidz, are scribbling down thiz tag to send out the word from the hood to da street, yo. Word!!! Fo sure...



The original was a bit stale>>>

We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.

How many times have we been down this road to fiscal cliff?  It is a joke.  We can cry wolf all we want...but one day the dollar will be worth toilet paper and we will be on the brink of civil war...a new constitution must be put in place to prevent total chaos and mass crime.  There will be no rich and no poor, just everyone in the same twilight zone.

This is a case where a new constitution would be put into place.  How much will our debt be when we do crash?  17 Billion?  25 Billion?  Does it matter when the dollar becomes a mere memory?

Once the collapse begins, Obama will be ready to pick his panel to write a new "socially just and wealth equallity" constitution.  A few names may just re-appear...Van Jones, Anita Dunn, Bill Aeyers, chelsea Clinton and Justin Beber.

At some point the president will be compelled to act for the safety and welfare of this country.  If Romney had been our leader, the new constitution would look much different.  Romney would have fixed the problem and saved our system.  Obama has been brought up and schooled in how to properly and legally overthrow the "man" as a community organizer.  His whole frame of mind is to "take down the man", "wipe out the establishment", "take power back from the old rich white men".  Never let a serious crisis go to waste.  Obama used the housing collapse to jam healthcare down our throats.  If we go over the cliff, this will be his dream.  A huge catastrophy where he can come in and "clean" it up with love, equality and social justice.  We will need a new constitution for Obama to finish his grand plan to wipe out the 2 party system and claim victory for the bottom 99% of us.  Every job is govt regulated and every product is govt priced.  Good bye capitalism, hello socialism.

What else do you expect? It's always the same straw man argument. It's impossible to escape it. Reasoning doesn't matter.

The Constitution is just fine the way it is written.  It just needs to be enforced.

We have no checks or balances when a corrupt group of men want to legislate around it.  They answer to their own "higher power"...lobbyist.

Even the top shelf of the military...who are supposed to be sworn to protect it...are in the pocket of the Plutocracy...writing a "New" constitution is not going to fix anything.

I find that both sides aren't looking at the whole picture. We cannot go back to how things were. A new Constitution without the amendments wouldn't work. What we need is a new amendment that gives some actual authority to the people, some important issues need to be approved by us(The people) not Politicians(I think everybody can agree that Politicians today are not totally on our side anymore). Just voting people for office isn't cutting it for the Federal Government it should be treated more like state and city government because access is now easier then ever. It will never happen though because we(The people) don't want to take the blame for how things turn out.
