If you — meaning any American citizen — sit still for this and allow it then you’ve ratified the death of our Constitution. You have not only ratified it by your inaction you’ve cheered it on and as such you are not welcome in my presence, on my property, and, in my opinion, you have no place at the table when it comes to any legitimate political discussion.
In a recent op-ed for Slate, Judge Posner, a senior lecturer at the University of Chicago Law School, argued that the original Constitution, the Bill of Rights, and the post–Civil War amendments “do not speak to today.”
“I see absolutely no value to a judge of spending decades, years, months, weeks, day, hours, minutes, or seconds studying the Constitution, the history of its enactment, its amendments, and its implementation (across the centuries — well, just a little more than two centuries, and of course less for many of the amendments),” he wrote. “Eighteenth-century guys, however smart, could not foresee the culture, technology, etc., of the 21st century.”
