We update our laws on a yearly basis why not the Constitution and Bill of rights? I think it is about high time we do that I think it could help this country greatly if we did so. While it might not be popular amongst a good number of Americans I think most of us can agree that it defintely needs to be modernized and brought up to current times and standards.
As we all know the Constitution and Bill of Rights was created back in 1789 during times of salvery. The revolutionary war was also going on as well. So, a lot of what was put into the Constitution and Bill of Rights fit for that time period. Things have obviously changed drastically since then. Our weapons have obviously have became more high tech and also more deadly then they were back then. We now have news publications like National Equirer which spews out tons of bull which while it might be entertaining is also full of lies. Which I am pretty sure back then they didn't have publications such as those, but don't quote me on that as none of us lived back then so I can't be sure about that.
As you can see there are things in the Constitution and Bill of Rights that can be updated for our modern times while keeping intact our freedoms. If done responsibly it could actually help this country for the better. As I said at the beginning if we update our laws on a yearly basis why don't we update our Constitution and Bill of Rights? There are a number of Democratic and Republican senators that are in favor in updating the Constitution and Bill of Rights. The key obviously is not to go crazy as to take away our freedoms that we enjoy. While this may seem like a drastic measure to take keep in mind that we need to be open minded about this and not just automatically shoot this idea down. I know I can't be the only one that thinks this needs to be done. Petition to update the Constitution and Bill of Rights
