    No! Our founding Fathers spent a great amount of time thinking through what was appropriate, honorable and ethical & I agree with the original u.S. Constitution 100%!

    No. As is the Constitution gives us the best protection of our rights, now all we have to do is follow it like it was intended. We have enumerated powers for the feds, anything not enumerated to the feds were left to the states and the people.

    No. If necessary, amend it.

    No. The Constitution was written to protect the population as a whole without infringing upon the rights of the individual. I cannot imagine what could possibly be for the "greater good" if it infringes on our individual and unalienable rights.

    The 4th Amendment is violated all the time like drug testing for welfare $$ (taking pee or blood) also some of these forced ultrasounds are against the basic intention of the 4th Amendment. I'm sure there are other incidences but that's the first off the top of my head. I don't think we can pick and choose which freedom or right is okay to violate.

    Drug testing for welfare benefits is no differnet than drug testing at work.

    No not good to violate the constitution at all. The constitution should be amended before it is violated.

    Yes, if thats the case it would be unamerican to follow the constitution. America is for the greater good first and the laws second.

    No, no, and no again. The Constitution has been, and is being, violated. And if the Constitution is violated, it can not be for the "BETTER GOOD" of anyone or anything, period. If something is so damn good, amend or pass a law that can make it through Supreme Court.

    No! If there's a true problem, amend the Constitution.

    Yes. The constitution is a great plan but it shouldn't be treated so holy as it is. Sure, it should be considered when taking actions, but it's not nessessarily permanent.

    With out the constitution you would not be able to make the remark you just did.

    That's not entirely true. If a new system was invented with similarities I most likely could have. Still, I'm not saying that the constitution should be violated, as it is a good system of rules that's worked well since the beginning of the USA. But it shouldn't be treated like it's set in stone. Society was way different when it was made so it can't be completly accurate to what standards are held now.

    Anytime things change to the point that the constitution needs to change, it can be done by the amendment process, as it has 27 times so far.
  • Lydecho... Tennessean 2012/04/28 18:07:32

    Yeah, but still. Sometime in the future society might grow apart from the constitution entirely. And it wouldn't have to be a bad thing, if we found something just as good.

    Not grow apart, but be indoctrinated to be against it, like what you are showing has been done to you.

    Granted, in the future, our form of government may need to be changed, just as it was stated in the Declaration of Independence.

    "Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security."

    Actually it is the supreme law of the land, so yes it is set in stone.

    Can you tear the foundation from under a house without demolishing the house?
  • Lydecho... Liberta... 2012/05/04 23:50:22

    No, of course you can't. But if something bad happens to the US than that's too bad for the US. The world would be affected but it wouldn't stop functioning.
