    Gee,I thought those amendments were created to do just that. And they were created by members of both parties (such as they were at the time up to now).

    Yes, amendments are used to change the Constitution and both parties must be involved. What Belmont is referring to is the interpretation of the original and the amendments thereof. The progressives (mostly liberals but with some RINO’s) believe that the Interpretation of the Constitution must be viewed in the light of todays values rather than the meaning that was the original intention. I believe a strict interpretation of the Constitution (with its amendments) is the proper way to go. That is why our founding fathers made it so hard to amend the Constitution.

    Good explanations from ghenley and Mr. Belmont.

    A living constitution means no constitution at all. It is rule by men rather than rule by law.

    And then you have your president’s like Bush who do what they want with no regard to the Constitution or any other laws and just write papers on why it doesn’t apply to them. Contrary to what the hard line right wingers will say Bush wrote more than any other president, more in fact than all presidents before him combined.

    Yeah, lucky for us we have Obama to continue to carry out those policies, which he has. What a disappointment.

    @itisme

    You disagree? You can do that only as long as the living constitution decides you can. Enjoy it while you are able.

    Of course, had “liberals” done that, you might have a point. It is not ignoring religious beliefs to say the government has no business promoting any particular set of beliefs. That IS the separation of church and state, specified in the US Constitutiion – that citizens may subscribe to any belief system they like – and the government shall be non-denominational. And that’s something most conservatives would buy into as well as liberals. For example, most Christian conservatives woud not like it if say Islamic or Mormon beliefs were being promoted in their child’s school (and I’m not choosing Mormons to start some sort of religious scrap here, but because I can say, from experience, that most evangelicals regard Mormonism as something other than Christianity – and would get up in arms if their kid’s principal, for example, started teaching students Mormon beliefs in a public school). But what’s good for the goose is also good for the gander – the same public school has no business advancing any particular faith, not just ones that are less popular.
    The founding fathers were predominantly Deists – not Christians – meaning they rejected the Bible (and any other scripture) as the word of God, and believed only a vague and impersonal god or creator who granted humans the power of reason.They wanted separation of Church and State quite explicitly to keep matters of faith from becoming matters of governance.

    Gee, I thought it was the Republicants.

    No…that is not a living Constitution…that is just making things up for your own benefit. A ‘living Constitution’ has to do with actually understanding the original Framers and how the Constitution can be applied to new challenges. Madison, Hamilton and the rest intended it that way and would, no doubt, be horrified at fools like Scalia and friends who think they can use convenience and agenda to deliberately misinterpret the Constitution.
