    I wonder, do they support the 18th Amendment?

    Article 1, Section 9, Clause 4? (That is a favorite of mine actually. I wish the mandate was a tax so that the court could strike it down on the basis of it being facially unconstitutional because it violates this.)

    Article 5, which actually gives us those amendments they suddenly admire?

    Constitutional Progressives

    The explanations of their positions are particularly telling.

    So I take it you are the self appointed guardian/interpretor of our Constitution?

    Oh holier than thou. May I perchance read said document? Am I blindly to support all amendments giving up my right to retract or amend such amendments? I think not. Doesn't that defeat the whole purpose of why we may have amendments to begin with?

    Repel direct election of Senators and term limits on the Presidency. Draft an Amendment that makes it clear that illegal aliens giving birth in this Country does not make their children citizens.

    You won't find my name on that pledge, or any other pledge or petition.

    That makes you a TEA Party asshole who wants to take the Constitution away from progressives.

    Welcome to the club.

    I stated my position and it includes not wishing to take the Constitution away from anyone including when the judgement or winds of chaage may go against the way I view it.

    Amendments are part and parcel of the Constitution, INCLUDING any new ones that get passed. If you support the Constitution then you support the Amendment process for said document. Or your claim you support the whole Constitution is a lie.
