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

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.

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.

However, this crew ignores it and augments it, just as 33 above put it so well.

Obama: Right to vote ´threatened´ by GOP

President Obama on Friday said that Republicans were behind the biggest threat to voting rights in decades. “The principle of one person, one vote is the single greatest tool we have to redress an unjust status quo. You would think there would not be an argument about this anymore,” said Obama in an address to Rev. Al Sharpton´s National Action Network conference in New York City. “The right to vote is threatened today in a way that it has not been since the Voting Rights Act became law nearly five decades ago,” he added. The president directly blamed Republicans, saying new

ORLAND, Calif.- It was a busload of opportunity: young, low-income, motivated students, destined to become the first in their families to go to college, journeying from the concrete sprawl of Los Angeles to a remote redwood campus 650 miles north. Those dreams shattered for some Thursday in an explosive freeway collision that left 10 dead - students, chaperones and both drivers - and dozens hospitalized. Desperate families awaited word about loved ones Friday, while investigators tried to figure out why a southbound FedEx big rig swerved across the grassy divide of California´s key artery before sideswiping a car and slamming into

President Reagan was holding a meeting in the Cabinet Room on March 25, 1985, when Press Secretary Larry Speakes came over to me, as communications director, with a concern. The White House was about to issue a statement on the killing of Major Arthur Nicholson, a U.S. army officer serving in East Germany. Maj. Nicholson had been shot in cold blood by a Russian soldier. Speakes thought the president´s statement, "This violence was unjustified," was weak. I agreed. We interrupted the president, who reread the statement, then said go ahead with it.

A copy of Barack and Michelle Obama’s tax returns released Friday shows that the first couple gave only .3 percent of their income to their church in 2013. The Obamas made a total of $59,251 in charitable contributions in 2013 — 12.3 percent of their income — but most of the donations went to primarily secular organizations. From their adjusted gross income of $481,098, the president and first lady gave $1,500 to St. John’s Church, an Episcopalian parish near the White House where they occasionally attend services. The rest of their giving went to 31 different charities, including the American Red

Instead of getting to work on my own tax return, I´d rather look at President Barack Obama´s. So the White House did me a favor by releasing the 2013 joint federal income tax return of Barack and Michelle Obama Friday afternoon. Here are some highlights: • The Obamas paid $98,169 in total federal income tax on adjusted gross income of $481,098. That´s an effective tax rate of 20.4 percent. • The Obamas are due a tax refund of $19,108. What should they spend it on? • Besides his salary, Obama reported $104,809 in business income from book sales. That´s down

The son of the Nevada rancher locked in an increasingly tense land dispute with the federal government, says their cowboys managed to break a blockade and retrieve around 30 head of cattle. Federal agents swooped on Tuesday after Cliven Bundy, dubbed the last remaining rancher in southern Nevada, refused to remove his herd of 900 cows from land he claims has been in his family since 1870. The heavily-armed federal agents, equipped with eight helicopters and backed-up by snipers, surrounded the Bundy ranch after the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) attained a federal court order to confiscate the family´s herd.

WASHINGTON -Michelle Obama and Jill Biden are offering relief to millions of people who care for wounded service members and veterans. At the White House on Friday, the first lady and the wife of Vice President Joe Biden are announcing new steps by private and public sector organizations to help ease the heavy burden on what many say is a vital but largely invisible workforce. They are being joined by former first lady Rosalynn Carter and former Sen. Elizabeth Dole. Carter has a longstanding interest in family caregiving. Dole´s husband, Republican former Sen. Bob Dole of Kansas, lives with lasting

The son of the Nevada rancher locked in an increasingly tense land dispute with the federal government, says their cowboys managed to break a blockade and retrieve around 30 head of cattle. Federal agents swooped on Tuesday after Cliven Bundy, dubbed the last remaining rancher in southern Nevada, refused to remove his herd of 900 cows from land he claims has been in his family since 1870. The heavily-armed federal agents, equipped with eight helicopters and backed-up by snipers, surrounded the Bundy ranch after the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) attained a federal court order to confiscate the family´s herd. But

Attorney General Eric Holder strayed from prepared remarks to slam the way he was “treated” by a House committee the day before, calling it evidence of “ugly and divisive” civil rights challenges facing him and President Barack Obama. Speaking to the Rev. Al Sharpton’s National Action Network at its annual convention in New York on Wednesday, Holder talked about the state of civil rights today and brought up a House committee hearing Tuesday that grew contentious, according to video from Mediaite and reports from outlets including Capital New York. “The last five years have been defined by significant strides and

Hillary Clinton was the planned keynote speaker at the 17th Annual Western Healthcare Leadership Academy in San Diego on April 11 - but she´s cancelled her visit in the midst of planned protests from San Diego locals and military families. Protestors organized by "The Difference Matters" do not want the former U.S. Secretary of State to come because of Clinton´s role in the Benghazi scandal. "She is not welcome here in San Diego by so many of us. We don´t want her here," said Jan Iverson, a local mother and protestor. (Snip) Clinton´s office says she changed plans because of

Barack Obama got quite the handful on Thursday, April 10, but it was all for a good cause! As the President of the United States was boarding Air Force One with his wife Michelle Obama, a gust of wind blew up her skirt. Barack quickly stepped in and grabbed the First Lady´s billowing skirt to help her avoid a wardrobe malfunction and embarrassing Marilyn Monroe moment. Earlier in the week, another famous lady on the global stage suffered a similar snafu, but no one was around to help her -- not even her prince!

Big Government: As students flood Twitter with images of inedible slop, it´s clear that Michelle Obama´s government school lunch revamp is a costly failure. It´s time to get the feds out of kids´ lunch boxes. The $12 billion federal student lunch program, which serves 30.7 million kids, is losing participants fast — more than a million just last year, according to a recent Government Accountability Office report. The reason: the first lady´s Healthy Hunger-free Kids Act, an act that has accomplished exactly the opposite of what it claimed it would — leaving hungry, angry, disgusted kids and dumpsters full of wasted

Recently elected Democratic Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe is warning that global warming could raise sea levels high enough to flood the Hampton Roads region, home to the world´s largest naval base, without immediate and “smart decisions.” Addressing an environmental summit this week at the Virginia Military Institute in Lexington, Va., McAuliffe embraced climate change, blamed humans for causing it, and said action is needed now to protect Virginia´s coast from rising ocean levels that will result from global warming. “The first big decision of course is to accept that climate change is real,” he told the group. “I happen to believe in

Following the massacre of grammar-school children in Newtown, Conn., in December 2012, high-powered weapons have been used to kill innocent victims in more senseless public incidents. Those killings, however, are only a fragment of the total harm caused by the misuse of firearms. Each year, more than 30,000 people die in the United States in firearm-related incidents. Many of those deaths involve handguns. The adoption of rules that will lessen the number of those incidents should be a matter of primary concern to both federal and state legislators. Legislatures are in a far better position than judges to assess the

Solar power has won the global argument. Photovoltaic energy is already so cheap that it competes with oil, diesel and liquefied natural gas in much of Asia without subsidies. Roughly 29pc of electricity capacity added in America last year came from solar, rising to 100pc even in Massachusetts and Vermont.[Snip] The technology is improving so fast--helped by the US military--that it has achieved a virtous circle. Michael Parker and Flora Chang, at Sanford Bernstein, say we entering a new order of "global energy deflation" that must ineluctably erode the viability of oil, gas and the fossil fuel nexus over time.

Nearly a year into the IRS scandal, we still don´t know exactly what happened—though we are finally getting an inkling. That´s thanks to the letter House Ways and Means Chairman Dave Camp sent this week to the Justice Department recommending a criminal probe of Lois Lerner. The average citizen might be dizzied by the torrent of confusing terms—BOLO lists, Tigta, 501(c)(4)—and the array of accusations that have made up this IRS investigation. Mr. Camp´s letter takes a step back to remind us why this matters, even as it provides compelling new information that goes to motive and method—and clarifies some of

STAMFORD, Conn. — Jeb Bush defended his controversial comments about immigration reform, insisting they were nothing new for him and urging “sensitivity to the immigrant experience.” At a Connecticut Republican party dinner Thursday night, the former Republican governor of Florida did not repeat his remarks from last weekend at his father’s presidential library, when he said that people who come to the United States illegally in search of a better life for their children “broke the law, but it’s not a felony. It’s an act of love.” This time the potential 2016 candidate put it differently. “To be young and

The deportation of foreigners living illegally in the United States is similar to the forced internment of ethnic-Japanese Americans in World War II, according to Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi. “I’ll be very honest with you: Looking at the numbers at some point, in terms of how people are treated and deported and families separated and the rest, this has a scent of Japanese internment,” Pelosi told a Politico reporter. “It’s really a black mark,” said Pelosi. Roughly 110,000 ethnic-Japanese immigrants and their American children were detained during World War II after Japan’s sneak attack on Americans in Pearl Harbor. Pelosi also urged Obama
