Yes, it is.

Without it, all bets are off.

“The Constitution’s not a suicide pact.”

Then have Congress declare war.

"The Constitution’s not a suicide pact."

Yes, it is. Our (so-called) leaders and our military take an oath to defend the U.S. Constitution, not the country. Without the Constitution as the law of the land, we will not have country fit for free men.

The Constitution’s not a suicide pact.

As I state whenever someone bring up this ridiculous phrase: "let's think about this for a moment - a group of farmers, lawyers, and businessmen sign their names to an open declaration of treason against the Crown, which controls the largest empire and the most powerful military the world has ever seen, and whose punishment for treason is generally death, and it's *NOT* a suicide pact?! I just love that one. Had the revolution turned out the way that any logically thinking person would have expected (it certainly hadn't completely succeeded just yet - see: War of 1812), every man whose name appeared on that Constitution would have been executed to serve as an example of what happens to traitors. These men put liberty far above their personal safety in the face of nearly certain death - but hey, it's not a suicide pact or anything."
