    WHAT THE FOUNDING FATHERS DIDN’T KNOW.

    When the founding fathers wrote the constitution in 1776 the did not know that in 2011 we would be living in a whole new world with different set of problems. A population explosion plus 20 million illegal aliens. A welfare system to take care of our elderly, poor and disabled since we no longer take care of our own and chickens and corn do not pay the bills. We did not pay foreign countries to be our friends.

    The constitution of the 1700s cannot deal with the problem we have today. The constitution is like the old covenant that GOD had with the Jews that become obsolete because a new covenant was needed. We need a new constitution to deal with a new set of problems.

    The reason we have so many problems today be because we try to apply the 1776 constitution to today’s problems and it don’t work. There are most who are stuck in 1776 and want us all stuck with them and stand in the way of progress.

    The constitution was written by a group of old white men for white men and not even white women and blacks were not even considered.

    unborn children weren't considered either. Of course they thought that barbarism was a thing of the past.

    I can barely see my screen for all the flies swarming around this steaming pile of horseshit.

    I shiver in horror at the thought of any politician in DC today creating any constitution. I wouldn't want them crafting the by laws of my homeowners association.

    The Constitution was completed in 1787, the Bill of Rights in 1791, not 1776.

    This is among your more ignorant and idiotic posting, which is saying something.

    It’s also remarkable how the radical right seems to have no idea the Supreme Court exists at all.

    The reason we have so many problems today is not the constitution but the people who we elect and the citizens themselves. Where are the people who can lead us. They do not run because they will be vilified by the news media for something they did as kid or their life will be x-rayed down to the minute detail. We tear down our potential leaders to the point where only a few will take the plunge, and then it comes down to money and political backers not ideas or plans to lead us into the future.

    The Constitution may have flaws and there are ways to fix them but is there a better model out there? Is the British government better or the French or the Russians? No matter what is written upon a piece of paper it is the people who determine whether a government can govern and govern effectively. Until the people wake up and get involved (50% do not vote) in the process nothing will change.
