    Megyn Kelly Challenges Professor Who Wants America to ‘Give Up’ U.S. Constitution​



    By Billy Hallowell

    Many Americans were shocked to learn about Georgetown University Professor Louis Michael Seidman’s advocation for the U.S. to abandon the Constitution — the central document that has helped spawn America’s growth and progression for hundreds of years. As previously reported, the constitutional expert recently noted his belief (via an op-ed) that a blind allegiance to the outdated document is perilous. On Friday, he defended his controversial views about some purportedly “evil” provisions in the Constitution in an interview with Fox News’ Megyn Kelly.

    It is not a surprise that liberals want to give up the Constitution. They can't find application to the way they want to run the country.

    Tyranny by the many is still tyranny. Send this guy to Gitmo as a terrorist.

    I agree with Megyn, what he's saying is interesting and thought provoking. For crying out loud, don't blindly write off what he is saying, lest you give credence to his points.

    The Constitution was written only for a moral and religious people. It is totally ineffective to govern any other.

    If that's true, than I agree, scrap it. We need laws intended for free people, unrestrained by any other person's notions of acceptable morality or religiousness.

    I would have no problem replacing the governing framework, the least of my reasons is because it has been taken over by special interest critters who more often than not look out for the interest of their political donors than the people who voted them in. I would keep all of the Bill of Rights and most all Amendments.

    Yet still, that raises the question, with what would you replace it?

    Absolutely! Ben Franklin knew this day would come.

    there is no form of Government but what may be a blessing to the people if well administered, and believe farther that this is likely to be well administered for a course of years, and can only end in Despotism, as other forms have done before it, when the people shall become so corrupted as to need despotic Government, being incapable of any other.

    We are now that corrupt as to have need of a despotic government. We're incapable of the Constitution. It's ineffective to govern an immoral and corrupt people.

    A differing opinion:

    “In politics as in religion, my tenets are few and simple. The leading one of which, and indeed that which embraces most others, is to be honest and just ourselves and to exact it from others, meddling as little as possible in their affairs where our own are not involved. If this maxim was generally adopted, wars would cease and our swords would soon be converted into reap hooks and our harvests be more peaceful, abundant, and happy.”

    George Washington
