I realize that all you "strict Constitutionalist" conservatives are going to flame the hell out of me but oh well. The Constitution was written 223 years ago in a much different time that today. I think it is insane to hold the Constitution as some infallible doctrine that works no matter what year it is. It was written in a time when agriculture was the basis of the economy. It was written a century before the Industrial Revolution. It was written when much of the world was ruled my monarchs. The world is nothing like it was back then and people think it is still valid today? That makes no sense to me. I have no problem with using it, but when there are "strict Constitutionalists" that oppose even amendments, I think it is insane. At best you people are reactionaries. I have a lot more to add but I don't really feel like typing it all right now. Anyone else feel the same.
