It seems like Trump is having people search out if things are capable or not. Just like using military funds for some of the wall. There are some un-allocated military funds that can be used for a national emergency...you know the one that the Dems were saying was NOT one because it was a manufactured crisis and now they are saying it is a crisis?
During th obama admin he AND THE DEMS said it WAS a crises, Now "you know the one that the Dems were saying was NOT one because it was a manufactured crisis and now they are saying it is a crisis?"


Just like kerry, "I was for it before I was against it", and when the dems created the "nuclear option", the the repubs used it, whined and cried about it.


The dem WARNED W. Bush to NOT appoint a SC judge during his lat year in office because they would NOT confirm him.


When the tables turned they whined and cried when the repub controlled Senate DID what the dems promised they would do.

The United States of America did not 'expel' the Confederates; the neo-Confederates are still around.

An attempt to throw out the constitution could easily be the end of the country. What you might have is several countries. I cant see conservative small states ruled by Ca., as would surely happen. In the long run, I'd be all for a breakup. We'd probably all be happier. There's no unity in the country anymore.

Face it, the countries in for a fall anyhow. Everyone can see the whole society is falling apart. Eventually, the USA will cease to exist. All empires fail.

Although it did not result in a new constitution, it did start a discussion about what their values are as a society and what kind of nation they want to be. It also stimulated new policy decisions.

What if the US followed the Icelandic example? What would you leave in or omit or add to any new constitution we happened to draw up under an Article V provision?

No. It keeps those like you in check.

Should the U.S. Write a New Constitution?


No, there are powerful special interests poised to pounce as soon as we open up that can of worms. We think we have problems with lobbyists now, we think we have problems with 'the swamp' now .. as soon as we open a constitutional convention all of that misplaced influence and power will come to bear on the work.

One thing we know about the founding fathers, they were for the most part sincere, and they left us a way to modify the constitution (which we have done through amendments). We need the balance of three branches of government, and as much as it may irritate us at times we really need checks on the power of each branch.
