    If we stuck to the US Constitution would our economy be in this position right now?

    What do you think?

    you'd have to ask the idiot who was the first leader in history to cut taxes while waging a war.

    This is the type of response you get from liberals when you ask a serious question... They don't want to answer the question truthfully so they give some smartass comment... I would think this would get old after a while but I guess not.

    None of your questions are serious KMAN, they're trolling.

    You don't want answers, you want people to agree with you or otherwise they're "Liberals" and you probably snarl in Real life when using that term because you think you're better then them.

    Though to ask YOU a question: How exactly are we not sticking to the Constitution right now?

    This idea has some cache. It would seem strong constitutionalists will be compelled to denounce the present government as having abrogated the constitution. Once that is done a declaration might be drawn and approved for a dissolution of the present arrangement and to demand or declare the sucession of a small state like New Hampshire to go it alone so as to go back to constitutional basics.

    We do follow the consitution.

    We simply do not follow YOUR INTERPRETATION of what the constitution means, KMAN.

    But since this is America, and you are a master of your own destiny, you should have no problem going to law school, and positioning youself such that you become one of the black robed priests who interpret what the constitution really means.

    Have at it and good luck with LSATs.

    The Constitution is interpreted conservatively by Conservative Supremes and liberally by Liberal Supremes. The few moderates, who are probably closer to the truth, are ignored by the know-it-all on the extremes.

    BULLSHIT. It has steadly gotten worse since FDR. The Government is so full of unconstitutional Departments as to make the thing meaningless. Further Obama plans to shred it even more with people like you HELPING him.
