Let's be clear. Senators and Con-gresspeople are ignoring the written Constitution.

Which I think I'm right in saying is the highest authority on what is "legal" in the US.

Which suggests it's time to consider wheather the Houses of Congress are still representative of the people or wheather or not wholesale change of the system itself is needed.

When lawmakers disrespect the Constitution isn't that where the Founding Fathers were expecting the people to take to the streets and exercise their rights under the 2nd Amendment?

Because it really does look like "the State" feels it needs these powers to protect itself from its citizens. IOW the people are the enemy.

Which was pretty much the attitude of the Communist Party of the USSR.
