I'm afraid that chickensoup is right. The constitution talks a good talk, but in the end - its words on paper. To work, the truths it states have to be believed in AND acted upon by citizens.

In other words, if you dont stand up for the constitution, there are whole legions of people out there who will twist it, trash it, "reinterpret" it, or otherwise subvert it.

I agree. And “acted upon”, unfortunately far too often, means going to court. Sometimes you have to fight for your rights. Just being right isn’t enough.
