Nope. The 1787 version is fine. We just need to live by it..
The US Constitution failed to stop us from drifting toward a socialistic servile state. On paper, it reads pretty well, but after 200+ years of practice, we've ended up in a bad place.
I'd like a reset, because I don't like where we are.
You get what you vote for.
Not a snowball's chance....
Today’s leaders are not the best and brightest. There are no James Monroes, Thomas Jeffersons, Sam Adams, or Benjamin Franklins in our government. I doubt if most of them that are there have read Locke, Rousseau, or Hobbs. Or even the Federalist Papers for that matter. The best minds of the twenty first century are not attracted to Washington.
They need to keep their hands OFF the Constitution.
I'm not entirely certain that such minutiae as plastic surgery and the ingestion of intoxicating substances really belong in such a source document. Rather, I would submit that these are to be governed under a broader principle that would be equally applicable to topics not so specifically delineated - the Constitution is, after all, supposed to be a framework for future legislation.
It may be that I have misinterpreted your intentions here and if so I apologize, but it appears to me that the proper focus of the body of your text ought to be on the Bill of Rights exclusively. Whether I've missed the point or not (and that is quite likely), thanks for an interesting read.
If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it!
Maybe he means a new constitution with a new Qualifications Test for the Presidency (like, “Citizen of Kenya, Indonesia, Pakistan, or Transylvania?”). Well, that would at least clean things up a bit...
I vote for keeping (and honoring) the old one...
Changing the 'old' language in the Bibles for the lazy and calling that modernizing....2+2=5 if it makes the child less fearsome of math; changing the rules in some sports so there are no winners or losers and on and on. The United States Constitution is one of the most admired documents in the world....Leave It Alone.
