The obvious indicator is the unprecedented level of Constitutional violations committed by the current administration.
More damning is the virtual silence from the Republicans in response to these violations.
Just as obvious is the republicans have also been guilty of constitutional violations. Even Limbaugh has often stated "the constitution isn't a
The Constitution isn't perfect. Not every contingency could be foreseen by the founding fathers.
A perfect example is the president's "Football". His ability to launch a nuclear strike, theoretically in retaliation to a first strike against the
U.S., without congressional approval....an impossibility to achieve in the half hour or so available to respond.
Violations probably started on day two. Yet, they were outweighed by the overall support by the people, and yes, our politicians to that agreement,
that pact between us all.
Yet I saved the worst for last. Today, the California Supreme Court ruled that illegal aliens could become lawyers in the state of California. It
matters little whether you agree with their decision of not. It is perfectly within their right, constitutionally, to rule as they choose for the

The point here isn't who is right or wrong, it's the all-time low that the Constitution is held by those in power, not only Federally, but on a
state level as well.
it is worthwhile noting that the moves to the left by California and others, are ignored by the feds and those states which move in a direction away
from the feds find themselves challenged by the justice department, the ALCU among others. But the truth is, that trend could well reverse after the
next election and therefore isn't germane.
Even as a Supporter of a third party, perhaps a "Constitutional Party", I've come to realize that even that won't work. After all, California has
the right to mandate gay marriage, or not. Most issues ARE addressed at the state level, per the tenth amendment and the bottom line is not much would
change even if the federal gov't was reigned in.
The agreement by the majority is no longer there. it is measured by personal gain, not by personal conviction...or duty.
Dissolve it. Besides, if it no longer exists, there's no entity left to pay the back bills....
Two separate and distinct unions may have a future....
