If your doing nothing questionable or wrong, you have no worries, do ya?
I suppose what Abraham Lincoln did during the Civil War would be considered "treason" also? Riiigghhttt.
That's like saying that it doesn't matter what cops do to criminals or that convicts could be beaten, and as long as it is effective, it's ok. But since we don't commit crimes, that we should have nothing to worry about.
Fact is, is that change starts small. It would be impossible to outlaw the consititution, but to slowly take it apart piece by piece can be pushed past the masses fairly easily.
It does work both ways however, namely in the liberals or communist ideals or wealth redistribution and the like.
