Cesar Lumba’s Tuesday letter, “Constitution shows lack of wisdom,” criticizes the lack of wisdom on the part of our Founding Fathers for their “mistakes” in writing the Constitution and suggests we should either correct it or write a new one altogether. Can anyone in their wildest dreams imagine this Congress and president getting together to write a new Constitution? With a 2,700-page Obamacare bill that “we have to pass it to see what’s in it,” a 2,300-page Dodd/Frank bill that no one can understand, a 73,000-page tax code and the circus we just went through with the “fiscal cliff,” do you really think these people in charge of running the country could write a new Constitution? It makes my head spin just to think about it.
There’s nothing wrong with our current Constitution if our lawmakers and president would just abide by it.
