I’d like to personally explain to this Constitutional Law professor that I’d gladly ‘give up the Constitution’ if it mean we could unshackle ourselves from a bloated, tyrannical government that seeks to destroy itself. I’d gladly do it. When separated, we could then remake our own Constitution, largely like the original, but giving virtually no power to a Federated Government.
"I love the Union and the Constitution, but I would rather leave the Union with the Constitution than remain in the Union without it."
Whenever you hear someone say “give up the Constitution” it’s because they think the Gov’t does not have enough power as it stands now.
We have deviated from the Constitution, but that does not make it a poor document.
