What if the government regards the Constitution as merely a guideline to be referred to from time to time, or a myth to be foisted upon the voters,...
Here is a better question: What if tens of millions of regular Americans took a 3-day weekend, all at the same time, and visited Washington. No riots, no marches, no speeches. Simply go visit the Nation's Capitol as tourists. Smile, eat lunch, visit your Congressman. Smile, be happy. The difference would be the sheer numbers of "Happy Americans." Congressional offices would be packed like sardine cans and unnavigable to the occupants. Streets would be clogged with cars. The Media would simply have to report it. What the hell are all of these happy people doing in Washington? This would be the only polite wake-up call for those supposedly representatives of the People. Next time we come it will be different.
What if the government never took the Constitution seriously? What if the same generation -- in some cases the same human beings -- that wrote in the First Amendment, "Congress shall make no law ... abridging the freedom of speech," also enacted the Alien and Sedition Acts, which made it a crime to criticize the government? What if the feds don't regard the Constitution as the Supreme Law of the Land?
