The article brings up some good points. Quote: "Our sometimes flagrant disregard of the Constitution has not produced chaos or totalitarianism; on the contrary, it has helped us to grow and prosper". As of today that statement is true however it has brought us to where we are today -- on the slippery slope of totalitarianism and war mongering around the world.
I agree our nation should have the conversation but I cannot see anything good coming out of it. Our founding fathers were one of a kind where honesty and goodness meant something,whereas our leaders today, with the exception of a few, are self-serving individuals seeking power and wealth.
