True. Federal judges tell us that the Constitution is NOT written in stone.

Cap and Raid, Long Gun Registration, Non existent Immigration Enforcement...the complete selling out of the United States under one little law at a time...Our Judicial System needs a major overhaul.

Log on to the Institute for Justice and see how many laws are passed to keep out competition in certain certain busnesses. Most licensing laws are passed for that purpose.

Indeed. 'Law-making' is a racket designed to rig the game in favor of an elite.
