  •  If it is felt that the Constitution has become a (7+ / 0-)

    suicide pact, it can be changed. There are procedures for that.  You don't have to just disregard it on a mass scale.  It's called "democracy" - "government of laws and not men".  

    The elevation of appearance over substance, of celebrity over character, of short term gains over lasting achievement displays a poverty of ambition. It distracts you from what's truly important. - Barack Obama

      •  Oh, I don't think he or they even had the first (0+ / 0-)
