    Then your best alternative to doing nothing :   Is to be proactive .  The absolute best deterrent to violent crime is to let the criminal ,  that  the representatives of law enforcement have ignored by the way ,  know that YOU will not stand for their  perpetrations against  your  life  and livelihood's !  Support your constitution .

    All of it !  The constitution has to be protected  , unaltered . unchanged . I  happen  to believe that our legal system is relatively  broken though , Too many plea bargains ,  to many cases fall between the cracks of a failing  investigative ,  prosecuting  , incarcerating justice  system .   The whole system has become a revolving door   ,    I  do believe that  we are returning towards a system of inadequacy in the legal system .  As in the  typical   portrayal of the wild west days when one had to protect themselves  . Better get to it Peeples .........:-]

      I disagree. The Constitution has to be updated to reflect our society and the changes it goes through. It was in the Constitution that change would be inevitable and made provisions to react and adapt to it. Look at the loopholes that allow the illegal immigrants the anchor baby access. What about the money that runs our government! The Supreme Court is a sham as bias and political reasoning is behind many of the decisions that have come down especially in recent years. The shortcomings have directed and steered this country away from its purpose to serve the people and allow for prosperity for all.

        Of course , but it's not the constitution that must change necessarily ,  the judges have softened  to  more and more  politically activist  positions , that is the problem .    It is also the amending of the constitution that has cause problems too .

          " It is also the amending of the constitution that has cause problems too ."

          That is why it is written to allow for changes to take place even if a mistake is made. Look what the 18th amendment did in creating a colossal crime wave with prohibition. It was repealed and life got a lot safer for all. Why can't we see the harm that the 14th amendment has done and change that as well?

            Well Damn! again! Two in one day!

            First Wilderness on guns and now you bringing in the 18th Amendment as a precedent for action on the 14th.

            Well done, rhanson. I wish I had thought of that first. But since I didn't, I'm gonna steal it for use in another 14th Amendment conversation I am presently involved in.

              This is where I have hope that maybe one day we can make it right. I remember reading a book many years ago that had the pretense of Benjamin Franklin coming to the 21st Century. A discussion of the Constitution came up in the book and Franklin after hearing that it remained largely intact he said what a waste that it never grew with society.

                I believe the core essence of OUR Constitution must be understood and preserved, however.
                The anchor babies issue is a good example. Change the fourteenth amendment to fit the times with the proper understanding of protecting We the people, the citizens.

      Unaltered it would still say black people are worth less than white people. Sometimes change is good.
