Yes, that's why there are amendments. We have to keep it up-to-date with modern times. - jennyhooah (twitter) 0

I would have to say no. The concept of a People's Constitution is very much brand new. Government, by it's very definition, is a threat to freedom. 200 years is nothing. Just to compare, Japan was founded in 660 BC, which means over 2500 years of political history. - thorie (twitter) vote up image vote down image 0
