    Exactly.

    Look it has some great ideas and it's one of the most important documents in history, but we cant still be living in 1788. The world has changed a lot since then and the process for amending the constitution is nearly impossible with the effort usually being wasted on trivial things like gay marriage.

    No, the document is useful if proper channels are used to update it the main problem has been just about every president and congress since Theodore.

    True, he is an idiot just like the other 40% that want to cherry pick bits and pieces that they do not agree with.
