While you're at it, continue to create mayhem and destruction under the guise of the constitution and see what kind of laws come down the pike.
Don't blame the ones passing the laws, blame the idiots doing stupid things in the name of the constitution. ...peaceably assemble... Posted by
Please understand, I DO NOT agree with the anti-war bunch, and when they operate in large crowds the results are often frightening.
However, the right to peacefully assemble IS guaranteed by the constitution, regardless if you agree with thier reasons or not. The constitution
serves a very important purpose, and if you start messing with that, you are only opening the door for others to start messing with many other rights.
I would far prefer that the rights be engraved in stone and be held rigid, and not able to change or decrease them in any way.
Your point about the illegal blocking of traffic and the potential hazards it poses to public safety is well taken. This is what the police department
is for, to assure that idiots who organize these riots in disguise do not do such things. Does this lead to conflicts? Yes. However, I can deal with
conflicts a bit better than an encroaching police state.
