The commercial goes, “They go together in the good old USA, baseball, hot dogs, apple pie and Chevrolet.” I’ll add Mother’s Day and the US Constitution to the list.
Some things should never be changed. Many of us share a common angst over the direction our Country is headed. We may be able to agree on the problem, but there is a huge difference in how we approach the cure.
Changing our Constitution won’t fix our struggles and will only make them worse. An effort is underway to alter our Constitution. Those proposing a Convention of the States think if we have different laws it will make our Congress behave better. There are some good people pushing this idea and while they may not expect harm to come, they’re taking a gamble on our future. The most charitable way to treat this issue is to understand the naivete in which the proponents are submerged.
A lot of people like our US Constitution—myself included! It was the best our Country could do to reflect the agreement of the citizens.
Some people don’t like our Constitution because it limits the expansion of government. There are a few current elected officials who want to promote Fascism, globalism or a one-world government, but they must first get rid of several parts of the Constitution. A popular philosophy is to flatten our Country so that we will be on the same plane with other nations, but that seems impossible since our Constitution acknowledges that people have foundational rights.
Left to their own ideology, it will take a long time to unravel the fabric of our society. The US Supreme Court has accelerated the rate of erosion in parts of the US Constitution by usurping the legislative process. However, the process could be expedited far more quickly if we just altered the Constitution.
