    Right. But they didn't count on the existence of political parties. They feared the formation of parties. With the advent of parties, a monkey wrench is thrown in. People no longer vote their conscience. They vote their party for the most part. Making changes more than just "not easy".



    No one is calling the Constitution a train wreck. But just like you said. Time marches on. Circumstances change.

    To err is human. Surely you are not claiming the Founding Fathers were infallible or could not have made a mistake.


    I am not pointing any out. But somewhere in the Constitution there is something that doesn't quite fit the times.

    Voter ID laws:

    https://harvardlawreview.org/2015/02...ace-and-manner


    The path to combat voter identification laws, then, likely lies in litigation. The Supreme Court’s decision in Crawford v. Marion County Election Board
    52. 553 U.S. 181 (2008).
    makes litigation to combat voter identification laws under the U.S. Constitution problematic because the Court found a state’s concern with voter fraud — despite little to no evidence on the record of any voter fraud in the state — was a sufficiently weighty interest to justify a voter identification law.
    Liberals are a clear and present danger to our nation
    Pick your enemies carefully.

    Odd how you define just "what I need"
    Who in the hell do you think you are telling me what I need and don't need...typical liberal azzhat thinking.
