No, we don’t need the Constitution. The Constitution is a piece of parchment with ink on it. It cannot govern or unite. Those who do not appreciate American political culture will never abide by its maxims. Given the demographic changes since 1965, the Constitution does not keep us free. It shackles us.
Here’s an example. How many of us support the second amendment? The right to keep and bear arms is the most important right we have, for it is the only tangible right. Yet, I don’t support the second amendment; I support gun ownership and concealed carry. If the second amendment is repealed, I still support gun ownership and concealed carry. Molon labe. The second amendment is useful, but in its absence, I will not become a gun control advocate because corrupt idiots approved a new amendment. If the second amendment is repealed, how many American men would have to choose between their beloved Constitution and their beloved guns? Strong men choose guns; weak men choose paper.
Men who are ardent defenders of the second amendment are usually the same men who blather on and on about how great the Constitution is, how it’s the best political document ever written, and how we should hold to a strict originalist interpretation. Think of Glenn Beck and his goofball followers. Some of these guys anchor themselves to the entirety of the Constitution only so no one can claim they are inconsistent. This is why a man should support gun ownership and concealed carry, not the second amendment. The entirety of the Constitution includes much poison. Women’s suffrage? It’s the reason for the treason.
The Constitution is a reflection of a political spirit held by noble men some 200+ years ago. I respect this spirit, but I don’t abide by the words they wrote, particularly when these words function as a tool for our enemies. When we heap praise upon the Constitution, we drive another nail in our own coffin.
We must abandon the Constitution. And we must always remember that America and Americans existed long before the Constitution was written and ratified. Similarly, America and Americans can – and will – exist long after the Constitution is discarded. We have no other choice if we want to live as free Americans.
