I think Fundamentalists who fail to look at documents in their historical context and treat them as holy writ is dangerous too. What seemed like a reasonable solution to a problem in the 18th century does not necessarily fly today. You have to remember the constitution of the USA was written during a time of great paranoia about the British Empire eventually coming back to finish the job and reconquer America. It made sense in its historical context but in many ways is very outdated and has no current relevance and yet like the Bible so many people seem to regard it as something almost magical like it's authors were gods and not men. A constitution of a nation should be something that grows and changes with the nation not something revered as a sacred ob<x>ject. Most Americans don't even know that they went through several different versions before the one that is best known today was decided on. <br />
There may be many problems with the current USA government but the solution is not at the end of a musket. Get creative and find a 21st century solution instead of thinking in terms of the 18th century mindset.<br />
If you truly believe that how do you justify jumping to the option that involves bloodshed instead of trying to find a peaceful solution? Is instigating bloodshed without considering other options moral?
Yep, it is in the Constitution about redress. But I see a major obstacle being many people are too lazy to get up off their fat axis to be concerned. New World Order? North American Union? Hmmm....
Constitutionalists, the other nutjobs.
mmm scary civil war
none! start cleaning your guns gentlemen..
What about calling for a vote of "No Confidence" in our "do nothing" Congress that is supported by an overwhelming amount of signatures of our citizens and forcing the impeachment of our current Congress?
I'm with you. But we have to get rid of these Republicans the legal way. Vote 'em out! Vote 'em out in the States where they're trying to steal our rights and give money to Robber Barons!
