If the US Constitution was really implemented in this country the rightwingnuts would freak out. Imagine, the COTUS says Congress shall make NO law regarding the establishment of religion. Therefore, when Congress mandated "in God we trust" be placed on our money, they violated the COTUS. Same with their stupid "pledge". And Bush's wiretaps? What an obvious buttfuck to the COTUS. And this new extended war making power of the President? Clearly a moron waging war is why the check and balance is there, as Paul says, we violate the COTUS everyday we allow this shithead to wage his own war.
The 2nd Amendment is so vague as to be open to interpretation. I believe it gives those who would be available soldiers to a national militia the right to bear arms in a regulated fashion. I would like to see those regulations be the same as for those required to own a car, with the gun registered with a true National Militia, who would issue a license to the gun owner and require him to present proof of insurance in order to obtain it.
Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.
