One of the beauties of the constitution is that it is a broad document of principles that are timeless. The constitution is silent on many specific issues that are current and in need of common laws or regulations that spell out just what is acceptable and not in more specific terms that are not so subject to interpretation by individuals. Laws and regulations are a way for the people, through congress and the government to establish such order in places where the constitution is silent or is subject to widely varying individual interpretation. The constitution does not specifically permit or forbid many ideas and practices needed for orderly governance of the country. Laws should respect and comply with the constitution, to the extent that the constitution speaks to the subject of the law, but any number of laws may be needed in areas where the constitution is silent.

What about those who have served to protect the constitution. flag, country, and our freedoms. There have been many lives, loss of limbs, health, and other issues that were given in the sake of the flag, constitution, and country. We seen to forget how we have and continue to have our freedoms that we enjoy. It was for the love of country and flag that so many went to fight for the flag and country and this so true yet today. We have got to belive in our military and its members and not forget what they do for our constitution and country.

The United States Constitution is distinguished from other constitutions by its emphasis on restrictions and limitation of powers not the converse. The Constitution was drafted to protect the rights of the minorities against the actions of those in power. However, those who are in power and who have the funds have found ways to circumvent and undermine our Constitution. The result of this 'Constitutional Erosion' has created 'Big Government' who creates more laws and diminished rights and freedoms. The very fact that most americans cannot tell the difference between a 'constitution' which is how a government is to be administered, and a 'law' which is a rule of conduct created and mandated by a legislature is alarming to say the least. The United States the 'Constitution' limits governmental power and a 'Law' increases governmental power. This is the secret our Politicians do not want us to know! Any AMENDMENT to the United States Constitution would LIMIT GOVERNMENTAL POWER OVER THE PEOPLE! Wake up America!!!!! If you read the Constitution you will find out what our government is not supposed to be doing

My Constitutional right to agree is to, also disagree, so, opposing argument not making sense to me.

Yes, let us not forget that we have the power. 'The People' have the power. Our constitution was created to also allow certain changes because our founding fathers knew that it wouldn't be perfect forever. Although the principles may seem timeless, that might not always be the case. We must always be heard.

I think there is need to re-address the 29th Amendment of the Constitution to ensure that no member of Congress receives a paycheck until an annual budget is passed. That is the prime function of Congress, yet after 5 years we only have CRs. The House passes appropriatrions and then balks at raising the debt ceiling THEY caused to increase. They are all hypocrites. "On October 1, if there is no Annual Budget, then Congress shall not be paid until a budget is passed. No retroactive payments shall be considered."
