    Between following the constitution strictly as written, and eliminating it all together and empowering government to do whatever it felt it had to do... Which would you choose and why??

    It is indeed a simple question... and take this like an all powerful megabeing (God, Superman, invading alien force or whatever) was making it that there was indeed no in between choice or option

    On what conceivable basis do you think that is a simple question?

    "and take this like an all powerful megabeing (God, Superman, invading alien force or whatever) was making it that there was indeed no in between choice or option"

    ??? What was the purpose of adding that?

    Follow the Constitution.

    Your "poll" is a classic example of the false choice. The choice offered is ridiculous. Both options suck!

    I was about to vote for this choice, but then I noticed the little word "it", rather then the people.

    Lincoln and FDR violated the constitution and were right in doing so....

    I disagree about it being a simple question.
