Today is Constitution Day, the day in 1787 when the Founding Fathers signed the Constitution.
No one in their right mind would think that those who signed the Constitution believed there should be no changes ever made, or that what was in the Constitution was cement that could not be altered.
And yet, today, we have a majority Supreme Court which thinks we should go back to 1787, what is called “Originalism”.
This is pure insanity, and undermines the ability of government to adapt to changing times.
Most of what is considered “normal” today in constitutional terms is far from just the original document, and reflects the changing times.
And we are faced with a threat, greater than the Civil War or the Great Depression and World War II, to our ability to maintain a constitutional government based on the rule of law, as Donald Trump and his minions are a dire threat to America’s democratic future!
