"Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other."
I am not sure that any Constitution, no matter how skillfully written, can withstand the immorality of the likes of those who today occupy the seats of power. They would eventually find a way to twist the words and expand their power.
I find it sad that the only real way for people to effectively redress grievances is by shedding blood. Even the treason provision of the Constitution require making war against the US or giving aid and comfort to its enemies; it does not apply to politicians repeatedly violating the provisions of the Constitution.
We would be better off with no federal government at all. At least the people of the former USSR had the balls to get rid of their similarly worthless and destructive central government; I think that is the answer.
"Bend over and grab your ankles" should be etched in stone at the entrance to every government building and every government office.
