Our Constitution and system of government having three separate but equal branches to check and balance each other were designed to limit government. Actually, at the point of the Rebellion, the King was actively seizing powder, shot and firearms from the colonists and it was a major burr under the saddle of the colonies! They were where we are situated right now!
If the Constitution and Bill of Rights are modified by Liberal fanatics, it will be in the direction and for the purpose of giving more power to the government. They are like caged animals fighting to remove the chains and restraints placed upon them by our founding fathers. OF COURSE they want to remove the shackles!
Remember....power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely! Don't give an inch and never compromise because we know tyranny follows right behind trashing the Constitution.
What else would we expect from an Iranian? Of course he doesn't like a constitution such as ours because it provides strong protections against those who would take our rights and liberty. Google his name and read his students comments about him, here are a few: "doesn't speak good English", "is rude", "will talk about things that don't apply to the class", "doesn't like the military", and "questions on the test have to be written word for word as he said them in lecture and if you change what he said to make it grammatically correct or in proper English he will take points off".
How the hell does this guy have a PHD? In any undergraduate class you are taught that the Constitution is the first enlightenment document. It is BASED on Locke's idea of a social contract. If you read the language and then read Locke, or Roseau in particular you will see almost word for word the same ideas. If I had him I would drop his class and complain. And, it wouldn't be the first time.
Oh no, just because it's not as direct as later constitutions, written by nations that had American and France as models to copy and improve on. Sorry the Consititution wasn't 100% perfect. Yea, when it was first written there were some racial and other biases, but thats what the f-ing Bill of Rights is about. To talk about the documents as politically exclusive is complete ignorance of history and the reality of the situation.
[FONT=arial, sans-serif]"Khaligh recommends the nation convene a constitutional convention to produce a new one. “I am not saying the Constitution is bad, but the blueprint is not complete,” he said. “It needs lots of work. Personally, I think we should have a constitutional convention and write a new one.”[/FONT]
