Georgetown Law professor:
Scrap ‘archaic, idiosyncratic
and downright evil’ Constitution

Daily Caller [Washington DC], by Caroline May

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 1/1/2013 12:20:49 AM

With hours to go before nation heads off the fiscal cliff, Georgetown Law professor Louis Michael Seidman writes that the time has come to scrap the Constitution. In an op-ed published in the New York Times Monday, Seidman, a constitutional law professor, claimed that the nation’s foundational document is the real impediment to progress and solutions to America’s troubles. “As the nation teeters at the edge of fiscal chaos, observers are reaching the conclusion that the American system of government is broken,” Seidman wrote. “But almost no one blames the culprit: our insistence on

It´s not the constitution that got us in this mess,it´s the Marxist president and his bunch trying to implement their ideals.Unlike Cuba this guy can leave this country any time he wishes to.

When will your new constitutional convention begin? It should be interesting to see today´s ´intellectuals´ try to top the beautifully written document on which our country is founded. The founders even provided for their possible errors with a method for correction called the amendment process and another called the Supreme Court, though they did use the antiquated proposition of religious belief, the antiquated words of some of the world´s greatest thinkers and that flimsy addition of the Bill of Rights to bulk up the rules; how retrograde.

The problem comes from the lawless nature of humanity who will always wish to bend the law, no matter how broadly we would write the ´next constitution´. Could we also say that the bending of the law requires lots of lawyers to circumvent them. Is it possible to write Shakespeare´s advice into the next perfected constitution?

Oy, God save us!

As a former law student, AmJure´d Con Law, an attorney and taught Con Law to law students, I am stunned by this person´s opinion to scrap the study of our fundamental document comprising of our system of government.

Can you imagine in your second year of law school taking Con Law from this teacher, a requirement and also tested on all State bars being advised that the document is not worth studying, which comprises an entire year of study and one of the most difficult courses to learn and teach? And in all places, a university "adjacent" to the US Capitol.

And the US wonders why high school and college grads cannot identify presidents, states, countries, political parties, major historical events, or speak correct English.

What would he prefer to teach? Perhaps, Sharia? Or Communism?

What is it about American universities that breeds such contempt for the nation that made it possible for these pointy-heads to parasitize them?
They learn contempt for the people who protect them, who make products for them, who work to send their children to be taught — read indoctrinated — by them.
They, too, will be disintermediated by the Internet. The sooner, the better.

He is right. The present system isn´t working well for the nation. It is leading to disaster.

But it is working just dandy for those in government. Their interests differ from the interests of those they rule.

And yet Seidman concludes we should give more powers and privileges to those who already have the most and misuse them.

I fail to see how that will improve matters for me or the people of the nation.

We have divided powers and the Executive can´t act unilaterally in every situation. So the Executive is not absolute.

Obama has made a lot of progress toward gaining absolute power and may well succeed in grasping it.

If Seidman wants an Emperor and absolute state he should just say so.

Abandoning the Constiturion is what got us in this mess. There´s nothing in it about the depts.of education,energyor HHS to name a few.The federal gov´t now tramples onstate´srights,routinely.

This joker has the same line of thinking of people saying the debt ceiling should be infinity.

You cannot get a leftist off the idea that money solves problems,despite reams of proof it doesn´t.Obama´s already spent billions on Obamacare without one new person getting insured.How did the federal government get to be in charge of health insurance premiums?

How can you write a law that says everyone must purchase health insurance and in the next breath,say except for this or that group of people?
The left interprets "promote the general welfare as promoting welfare like they´re doing in Mexico to lure more voters here.

Obama has abdicated the fed gov´t duty to protect the border which should be grounds for impeachment among many other things he´s done.

Any blacks that hate the Constitution don´t really know the Constitution. They´ve been brainwashed by leftists to believe it´s something that it isn´t. And most have been taught false revisionist history. This "professor" is EVIL (w/ a capital E). That´s the problem with what is happening today...too many people have been falsely misled, propagandized, indoctrinated and just plain lied to when it comes to history and our founding documents. A lot of history has been rewritten to persuade people that this country is bad. It started about 100 years ago, but has become "progressively" worse.

And no, the system we were founded on DOES work. The problem is that we´ve stopped keeping vigilance & don´t hold our government accountable. It is incumbent on ALL of us to TELL our reps & senators what they need to be doing or get rid of them. We have become lazy and don´t do anything. People here say "well, what can we do???" Pick up the phone, write letters, organize, turn off the danged TV!!

Georgetown needs to scrap Louis Michael Seidman.

Here´s his university webpage bio
After graduating from Harvard Law School in 1971, Professor Seidman served as a law clerk for J. Skelly Wright of the D.C. Circuit and U.S. Supreme Court Justice Thurgood Marshall. He then was a staff attorney with the D.C. Public Defender Service until joining the Law Center faculty in 1976. He teaches a variety of courses in the fields of constitutional and criminal law. He is co-author of a constitutional law casebook and the author of many articles concerning criminal justice and constitutional law. His most recent books are On Constitutional Disobedience (Oxford, 2012); Silence and Freedom (Stanford 2007); Equal Protection of the Laws (Foundation 2002); and Our Unsettled Constitution: A New Defense of Constitutionalism and Judicial Review (Yale 2001). In 2011, Seidman was elected to membership in the American Academy of Arts and Sciences.

So? My roommate was elected to AAAS in ´03 and thinks the Constitution is just fine.

There is a good reason for revenue bills to originate in the House.
When our country was founded, U.S. senators were not elected, but instead selected by state legislatures. The president was selected by the electoral college, without a popular vote. Onlly the members of the House were directly elected.
Those House members would be closest to the will of the people.
It makes sense if you think about it.

What is it about the Jewish intellectual Left that drives them to try to destroy, change or scrap the only governing system that has not tried to exterminate them from the planet. Socialism/communism wiped them out in the millions, yet they long for the good old days around their coffee at Starbucks. Many have achieved great success in this country, and all they want to do is change it. To what? Totalitarian control that will eventually turn on them. Be careful what you wish for. You might get it.

This guy simply says out loud what most liberals (Democrats) believe and practice. The Constitution was thrown out with the acceptance of the "living" Constitution. People don´t seem to recognize that we are only one liberal SCOTUS away from tyranny by five judges. Regardless of what they say, or pledge, liberal judges have no intention of following the Constitution. Like Robert Bork said, liberals determine what they wish the law said and then find a path to the result they want. Exactly backwards. So a "living" Constitution gives them the latitude they desire to remake the culture and society.

Liberals pledge to defend the "living" Constitution, not the Constitution the Founders gave us. So they amend it with every decision, ignoring the amendment process outlined in the document itself. And we sit by and allow it.

Scrapping it would at least require effort. The leftist bastids dem and repub do much better with ignoring it. Who in power today defends the Constitution? The house? The senate? Judicial? Surely not the white house. The Constitution is being shredded on a daily basis by the very people trusted to uphold and defend it. Treason? At the very least!

We have survived and would continue to survive the living constitution crowd. That´s what (U.S.)liberals do: interpret the Constitution liberally.
However, this crew ignores it and augments it, just as 33 above put it so well.
As there will not be a coup nor a purge, were I still in business, I would not be stealing from my employees pay and sending it to the government.

Better to learn to be a plumber or electrician and be something useful in life.

On Tuesday morning, a plane owned in trust by the Bank of Utah showed up in a very visible area of the Mehrabad Airport in Tehran, the capital of the Islamic Republic of Iran. What was it doing there exactly? Nobody knows, reports The New York Times. Under President Barack Obama, the United States has eased some of the long-standing punitive economic sanctions against Iran. Still, very little American — or European — economic activity is allowed inside the religious theocracy. The Bank of Utah is certainly no Wells Fargo. The Ogden-based community bank has all of 13 branches including

Some 174 people have been rescued and hopes were fading for those still missing. The divers saw the bodies in a submerged cabin where many of the children

With the Chicago weather finally getting a little nicer, Chris Anderssen wanted to grill some burgers outside for a group of family and friends. When she got to the meat aisle at her local Jewel-Osco supermarket, a case of sticker shock made her change the menu: extra lean ground beef was $4.99 a pound. "Five adults, four teenagers, that´s a lot of hamburger to buy," said Anderssen, a 42-year-old mother of two who works as an office manager. She bought chicken instead for $2.99 a pound. Retail beef and pork prices reached all-time highs last month, according to Bill Hahn, agricultural

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances.
