The constitution has become guidelines not law. It is ignored all day, everday.
Well put, could'nt agree more. Unfortunately because their operations are so huge, and their personal wealth so vast, they would be in a good position for a siege. Every good businessman knows how and when to cut his loses aswell.
The system has so much entrenched corruption and interest I imagine we could'nt even comprehend the levels. To quote a rapper: [People] talk about change and working within the system to achieve that. The problem with always being a conformist is that when you try to change the system from within, it's not you who changes the system; it's the system that will eventually change you. Immortal Technique, The Poverty of Philosophy.
As someone who is awake though you must understand my view. The constitution has no real value anymore. The issues of Privacy and Speech are the best examples without entering the area of fair reasoning within speculation, such as Americans eventually losing their 2nd amendment rights by a thousand cuts.
If the current constitution cannot protect your current rights, and is bypassed by things such as the patriot act, what hope is there for new additions? They would have even less acknowledgement in the long run. All my opinion Ofc but I think it is a valid outlook.
We have to cut off their cashflow before we can consider anything else. But people love their corporate products & services, so I think that part's impossible.

Neither party wanted Trump from the beginning. The only way an outsider could possibly get elected is if they have a lot of money. If neither corrupt party like Trump, It is obviously that he is exactly the right one for the job.
You can have more of this
Or you can have this. And if Trump gets nothing done we are still headed in the opposite direction of total death and chaos.

What really surprises me is the amount of people who truly believe Trump is an outsider , not a puppet, who can really get the us on a much better course. It's so absurd to see/hear people act like he is not a liar, not a politician, not a puppet.
It's all childs play and until we the people stop playing the bs games it will continue on to our demise.
"Each time a man stands up for an ideal, or acts to improve the lot of others, or strikes out against injustice, he sends forth a tiny ripple of hope, and crossing each other from a million different centers of energy and daring, those ripples build a current that can sweep down the mightiest walls of oppression and resistance." Robert Kennedy
He that would make his own liberty secure, must guard even his enemy from oppression; for if he violates this duty, he establishes a precedent that will reach to himself. Thomas Paine
If Tyranny and Oppression come to this land, it will be in the guise of fighting a foreign enemy. James Madison
