Why We Must Defend Our Founding Documents………… “I’ve got a simple idea: Let’s give up on the Constitution. . . . This is our country. We live in it, and we have a right to the kind of country we want.”

A law professor from Georgetown University, Louis Michael Seidman, went on CBS TV and said we should give up on the Constitution:

 

I’ve got a simple idea: Let’s give up on the Constitution. . . . This is our country. We live in it, and we have a right to the kind of country we want.

We would not allow the French or the United Nations to rule us, and neither should we allow people who died over two centuries ago and knew nothing of our country as it exists today. If we are to take back our own country, we have to start making decisions for ourselves, and stop deferring to an ancient and outdated document.

 

 

 

 

Now, Professor Seidman said that he didn’t mean that we should abandon the whole thing. We should just not let it get in the way of what we want to do. Worrying about the Constitution takes time and, besides, the Constitution has some dumb things in it, like the electoral college, which means that someone who gets a majority of the votes will not automatically and necessarily become president.

Also, it was written a long time ago, and why should we be ruled by the dead hand of the past?

 

A moment’s reflection shows why the professor is wrong. The most fundamental thing we understand about ourselves is that we are free individuals. David Tucker is a professor and advisor in the Ashbrook Center’s Master of Arts in American History and Government as well as an Associate Professor of Defense Analysis at the Naval Postgraduate School.
