Actually there is nothing wrong with the Constitution.
What we need to do is scrap Congress and the rest of
.gov along with the Lamestream media and syncophants like
Seidman. Wouldn’t hurt my feelings a bit if he was among
the first batch to dangle and swing.

Here’s an idea. Set them to work coming up with a new constitution. Not only will the resulting document have tremendous entertainment value, it will keep the little xxxxxxxx’s busy and not screwing up our country any more. They get a sense of accomplishment, we get a good laugh, then we burn theirs.

“Time to scrap the constitution.”

No, time to kick some liberal ass. Don’t like the constitution? Then get the hell out of the country! You’re not welcome here anymore.

kept us from debating the merits of divisive issues and inflamed our public discourse.

In other words, we on the right don't agree with you.

Gotcha.

Everything they discussed openly in the NYT 20 years ago has come to pass. This is not a casual offhand remark, it is a plan. This will end in violence unless they give up the course they are on. They are actually determined to end the constitution. We are living in a slow-motion, home-grown communist revolution.
It’s reality, as clear as watching a car speeding towards a brick wall. I hope people like him are targeted at that time, and not just the poor cops sent out to do the bidding of idea men like him. It just seems more fair!

This Seidman apparently wants to put the US on the fast track to totalitarianism. Why is an idiot like him allowed to teach constitutional law, anyway?

Since Louis Michael Seidman Doesn’t like the constitution he shouldn’t be allowed to speak freely

Misc. comments.
Seidman is all over the place re the Constitution. He says to scrap it and rely on customs, etc. I think that is called “Common Law”.

Using England as an example of anything relevant to orderly rule is not very smart. The government can collapse on one vote, or when one party, faction, etc. gets pissed at someone and takes all their marbles and go home.

Also, the marxist labor movement in England, for too many decades, ran the Labor Party and the country, into the ground. They were also an unchallenged Fifth Column, operating in the leadership ranks of Labor on behalf of Moscow.

{I just opened myself up to criticism because AFL-CIO leader Richard Trumka is a hardcore red, and former thug leader of the United Mine Workers of America. However, even his iron rule met significant resistance from the non-marxist unions and government rules concerning strikes that affect the national security/economy).

The Constitution may be old, but there was a lot of collective wisdom put into its creation and final version, plus the Bill of Rights.

It is the Democrats who have refused to abide by the rules, not only of the Congress (i.e. Holder not prosecuting the thugs of the Black Panther Party for voter intimidation, among others; resisting legally ordered document production from Congress; and protecting the President when he ignores Congress and the Constitution), but also the White House’s undercutting ICE, Homeland Security, and the Border Patrol from doing their mandated jobs properly.

Georgetown Un. Law School, over the past two decades has taken a decidely leftist turn, including hiring well known communist/marxists/sympathizers (Rev. Robert Drinan, a certifiably psychopathic Jesuit priest and lawyer, former congressman; David Cole of the CPUSA legal front (National Lawyers Guild) created offshoot, the Center for Constitutional Rights (loaded at its birth in 1966 with old Communist Party attorneys, sympathizers and proteges; Castroites and even a few Trotskyites & Maoists).

Whether Seidman is that far left, I don’t know, but his thinking is similar to that of avowed marxist CCR leader Michael Ratner, among others. They use the Constitution to destroy it, try to interject international law and other countries laws into our system, and personally support the most law-restricted countries in the world includingt Cuba, Venezuela, Iran, the Soviet Union/Russia, and Nicaragua, among others).

What is really needed is a national debate on the relevancy of the Constitution today. I’d love Mark Levin and a few others on the conservative side to take on Seidman, etc.

It would be really informative if done well. I’m reminded of the Prof. Arthur Miller (GWU) townhall seminars on the law that appeared on TV about 10 years ago. Very well done and thought provoking.

The American people have to be reminded of the long struggle to define our country’s legal basis, judicial system, governmental structure, and how the Constitution has kept us running despite ocassional hitches (Watergate, Bill Clinton’s impeachment, and Fast & Furious).

We are a good country but are under many attacks, from without and from within. The Left, now aided by the covert Moslem shariaists and jihadists, has undertaken a full frontal assault on every basic American political, cultural, historical and economic foundation stone, and they are succeeding beyond their wildest dreams.

This needs to be exposed on a national scale, in a national forum. The American people must be awoken from their stupor and stupidity, in plain language and through understandable examples and incidents, if we are to survive as the America we know it, or become Obama’s Marxist-Lite version on the way to the heavier stuff (Obamacare’s punishments should be the searchlight in the face on what has been planned for a long time and what is yet to come).

Seidman should not be ignored. He has opened a door. The only question is what goes through it, an American 18-wheeler with the Constitution written on its side, or a Cesspool cleaning truck driven by Obama and Company.

Time to stand up for the Constitution and America, or get ready for leftist tyranny from the bench.

Scrap the Constitution? If that’s the case, then all bets are off, and anything goes. Be forewarned. Good luck with putting the genie back into the bottle.

Louis Michael Seidman: Time to scrap the constitution

How can this clown (or insane person) end up teaching Constitutional Law at a major university?
Good grief!

We should dump a constitution that was 17 years in the making, debated ad infinitum, because a queer professor at Georgetown thinks it's antiquated?

Who will remember who Seidman is 50 years from today?

I could post so many reasons why delusional neurotics get media exposure when they spout nonsense, but I'll revisit this thread in a few hours, and hope normal people take a moment to respond.

Louis Michael Seidman, you can just go. Go to another country. I don't care. You can go by bike. You can go on a Zike-Bike if you like. If you like you can go in an old blue shoe. Just go, go, GO! Please do, do, DO!

... the Supreme Court could decree that mandates for private citizens to enter into contracts with private businesses is a-ok

Andrew Jackson famously dissed the Supreme Court, didn't he? When he defied their ruling against his eviction of the Seminoles.

Of all the branches of federal govern ment, the SCOTUS has the most tenuous hold on power, being entirely dependent on the executive branch for compliance with its decisions. One might say the same for the congress, I suppose, especially with the hyperextended powers of the executive branch these days, except that congress has deep roots among the populace, and many voices.

Of course, Seidman's call to brush aside the Constitution can be nothing other than a call for Presidential tyranny.

Might want to drop this a$$hole a line, I did! isn’t it always the case that these fatuous pricks think they’re so important that they need to use their middle names just to make sure we know who they “really” are! Like there are so many Louis Seidman’s around that he needs to differentiate himself by letting us all know his middle name. You will also note the obligatory beard.

This leftist nut is sensing that the days of Republican or conservative control and influence in Washington has ended. He knows he has a fellow leftist ally in Obama and that Dem candidates of the future will most likely be as leftist as Commissar Barack. So who needs a silly thing like a constitution? Stalin certainly didn’t. What was good enough for Stalin is good enough for the U.S.

He can call for the restoration of the King of England to rule America, his right to write nonsense is absolute.

Just as I can write that traitors should be hung from lamp posts.

Garet Garrett wrote "The People's Pottage" in 1944. One essay in that book was "The Revolution Was". Garrett argued that the people defending the passes to save the Constitution missed the boat, because the revolution already happened "within form" of the Constitution.

We need to restore the Constitution and remove all unconstitutional actions by the Federal government, such as Social Security and Medicare.

Where's the Republican Party on this: "We need to reform Social Security and Medicare to save it for future generations."

Hell, the GOP can't even talk about eliminating the Dept. of Education, the most worthless organization in the Federal Government. The GOP saves Education and Labor for the benefit of the teacher's unions and other unions, so that they can fund the Democrats and defeat the GOP.

GOP, dumber than a sack of bricks.
