So, the constitution has been around for 230+ years. It has been the centerpiece which is garlanded with slavery, the trail of tears, a good solid crack at colonialism in the Phillipines, manifest destiny, a civil war, one good, one not so good world wars, Vietnam, the current messes in Iraq and Afghanistan, at least 6 or seven major financial crises, Guantanamo Bay, Privateers, carpetbagging, the elections of 2000 and 1876, several invasions of other countries on the sly, Dred Scott, and the Federal Reserve.
So, Why is it that something that has allowed this string of questionable events to occur and flourish is sacred?
Maybe, just maybe, we need a new starting point.
Maybe it is time for a new constitutional convention.
