NY Times article on the world view of our Constitution

My answer to the NY times:

This article and many of the comments clearly show a lack of understanding and study on the intent and abuse of the constitution. "Most difficult to amend" I found especially distressful. It is not supposed to be easy. If it was, we would no longer be a republic but a democracy. Rule of law versus mob rule. At every change of administration, there would be changes.

There is nothing wrong with our constitution except that we have forgotten Franklin's words: "A republic ma'am, for as long as you can hold it". In other words, it is our fault for allowing our government representatives the power to abuse the constitution. It is meant to be a restriction of their power. We should fight to keep it so.

As far as the world no longer appreciating our constitution, that is pure garbage. As nations are realizing the damage their socialist, entitlement way of living has brought them to economic ruin, they look more and more longingly at our example.

We should reverse the 17th amendment immediately and work more to limit governmental powers.

Correct. The majority of the voters are dumbasses. Look at the Catholics. They raved about the "Social Justice" factor in electing Barack Obama. And somehow, this whole fiasco with the medical coverage that violates their pro-life religious convictions comes as a surprise?

We have a Constitution in place to put a stop to those elected and appointed to office when they do wrong. An impeachment process was put in place for treasonous office holders that provide weapons to drug dealers along our boarders so they can kill our citizens and border patrol agents. Congress has for years been passing laws giving more and more powers to the executive. Now any tyrannical dictator elected by the stupid majority can screw our lives with the stroke of a pen. Our Constitution lies in ruins because the majority of our electorate is stupid, lazy, greedy, self-serving, and not worth the Oxygen they consume.

Auntie Em,

Try to get in when I can. Been very busy out doors in southwest Texas. No reception out there. Very comforting to see you back.

Butt, I think everything is just flushing down the tubes. More and more people just vote for themselves. I hear liberals in Austin pontificating on more massive spending ventures for all sorts of rail projects. Sounds like the Californification people have been building numbers. Funny thing about rats. Once they consume everything in one place they migrate somewhere else. Now they are in Austin. Liberals are rats. They need to be exterminated.
