  •  Get people to care about the Constitution? (5+ / 0-)

    Wrap it in an American flag.

    Somewhat kidding. I don't have a real answer.  

    But your question reminds me of the meaningless efforts spent to "protect" the U.S. flag from desecration.  People seem to care more about that symbol than they do about the Constitution itself.

    Rather than burn a flag, I often think how much more powerful a protest it would be to burn a copy of the Constitution.  THAT would unnerve me.
