Is It Time to Ditch the U.S. Constitution?
A law professor at Georgetown University thinks so. What do you think?
In his op-ed, Sneidman blames the U.S. Constitution for many of our present day problems.
"As the nation teeters at the edge of fiscal chaos, observers are reaching the conclusion that the American system of government is broken. But almost no one blames the culprit; our insistence on obedience to the Constitution, with all its archaic idiosyncratic and downright evil provisions," Seidman wrote.
The Constitution, however, set up a way to make changes — through the amendment process. Following the tragedy at Sandy Hook Elementary School late last year, however, the Second Amendment is one that has come sharply into focus as gun control is hotly debated.
What do you think? Is it time for the U.S. to consider a new constitution in keeping with more current issues — or would that defeat the whole purpose of exactly why the U.S. Constitution was set up in the first place?
