What are these “evil” provisions in the constitution according to this professor?
I'm going to hazard a wild guess here, but I'll bet the prof has a real problem with the Bill of Rights. I will also bet he's a real fan of totalitarian government that doesn't have such niceties because they get in the way of enlighten people just like him. You know who they are — elitist liberals, socialists, Marxists, and other bed wetters.
To those of no faith in the fidelity of the words which are our bond, of course the US Constitution seems to be “dysfunctional”.
But the question remains, with what should it be replaced?
No likely drafts have ever been composed that so distinctly support the rights endowed by our Creator - “Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness” as enumerated in the Declaration of Independence.
But for some, life, liberty and pursuit of happiness are not among the paramount goals, virtues or rights of mankind, and certainly not if they are endowed by some supernatural diety. “Everybody knows” there is no such thing as God, we are here only by accident, and by accident, we, too, shall pass away.
Leaving, of course, a pristine Earth without the taint of humanity. But who would be there to record the fact?
What we allow the government to do rather than the government telling us what we can do. What part of “We The People” doesn’t this moron get?
The balance of powers, for starters. He clearly wants a more powerful presidency, so long as that president is a Democrat, of course.
I’m also sure he has great problems with the Bill Of Rights.
It would take a constitutional law professor to make such an ignorant statement. There is nothing wrong with the Constitution, it’s the idiot politicians who create all the problems. I can just imagine what a fine job this communist blowhard is doing teaching young people about our Constitution.
I’m sure you’ve done; but I’d tell anyone to read the Constitution for themselves. It’s relatively short, sweet, and to the point.
The Constitution is about all that’s standing in the way of President Obama (or any other) morphing into Dictator Until Further Notice Obama. Obama’s in a quest to shred that document. - Grant it oh Lord that he dearly FAIL!
The right to keep and bear arms, for one.
