One of the 4 or 5 greatest documents in the history of civilization, the US Constitution, created and has served for 225 years to strengthen to basic freedoms on which the United Sates of America was founded. George Washington, who presided over the Constitutional Convention, put the importance of the document and its principles this way: "Toward the preservation of your government and the permanency of your present happy state, it is requisite, not only that you steadily discountenance irregular oppositions to its acknowledged authority, but also that you resist with care the spirit of innovation upon its principles, however specious the pretexts. One method of assault may be to effect in the forms of the Constitution alterations which will impair the energy of the system, and thus to undermine what cannot be directly overthrown." To continually water down through constant "innovations"...isn't that what we are dealing with now? The Marxist left constantly sings the about the need to make the Constitution a "living document" and is irrelevant in its current form because it is out of date. Washington told us to be on guard for such tactics over two hundred years ago. It will serve us well right now to heed his warnings.For an issue by issue discussion of the Constitution, see the EPOCH Times , Defending the Constitution. It discusses the fallacy of a living constitution, the brilliance of the second amendment, racism, sexism, understanding the Constitution, and much more. An educational read, full of fact & truth, not politics and political correctness.

Her issues are really about the Constitution

from The Gray Area:
It is always confounding, and sometimes infuriating, to read the lunatic rantings of Jennifer Rubin in the Washington Post. That is why iI read them, shake my head in astonishment at her lack of contact with reality, and then move on. Her article on the left here from Sunday, Democrats should be clear: A radical GOP is holding the country back, is typical of her angry approach to two party government. What is clearer from this article than from some of her others, is that her gripe is not with the GOP, but with the Constitution, and for that matter, all other founding documents. Lets examine her main four points: (1) the electoral college, which has installed Republican presidents who lack majority support; (2) thinly populated, overwhelmingly White states’ disproportionate power in the Senate; (3) the filibuster, which effectively gives the minority party a veto over the majority; and (4) lifetime tenure of Supreme Court justices. Political narratives dominate her list, without concern for accuracy or reality.  Each are Constitutional protections for all the people of this country. It is only when those protections protect her opposition that a our Constitutional principles need to be done away with. When Democrats had the majority in the Supreme Court, lifetime appointments were no problem. When Democrats were in the minority  the Senate, the filibuster was of critical importance, see all the leading Democrats comments then. The Electoral College has protected minorities in this country from the tyranny of the majority. The founders installed this and the makeup of the Senate and the House to save us from this tyranny. In 1787, Virginia and New York were the most populous states. It was clear they would get anything they wanted in this new country. So the founders made a way to keep everyone participating. Today, New York is still a leader in population, but now with the great expansion of the country, California also takes population power. Since both are wildly liberal states, that population helps swing everything from elections to popularity polls. See the guns and abortion polling she references. Also, the important nuances in those polls are conveniently ignored by Ms. Rubin. Do the majority of abortion supporters agree with post birth abortion? No. Do the majority of abortion supporters agree with unrestricted abortion? No. That's why as the founders envisioned 235 years ago, negotiation not population should control the country. Our democracy, as the Democrats often refer to the USA, is really a constitutional republic, where democratic principles apply toward a better model for fair results. That is results for the American people that can be supported with facts and a deep review of public opinion, open to negotiation. Not just control by one political party, by design, just the opposite. The GOP likes to measure results. Progress within the scope of the Constitution. Ms. Rubin and her like, want what they want, using political narratives vs reality to get it.  Even if 'moving forward' to them is actually plunging the country off a cliff. If you think that is overly dramatic, just look at the current cultural rot led by progressive America in the cities they control and the disrespect of life evident in mass shootings and the abortion debate.
