Is the American Constitution past its Sell by Date
This essay addresses the change in American politics, with reference to the Constitution and how the Republican views of the founding fathers has not been kept.
“A constitution embodies the fundamental principles of a government. The United States (US) constitution, adopted by the sovereign power, is amendable by that power only. To the constitution all laws, executive actions, and, judicial decisions must conform, as it is the creator of the powers exercised by the departments of government. A brief history of the origins of the constitution will follow, the point that is to be argued is that although the founding fathers did an exceptional job in creating a constitution that would last for centuries to come, the constitution is now out of date, it is my view and that of others, that a Democratic state has taken over the Republican state that was envisaged by the framers of the constitution and therefore the constitution itself is out of date. Although American citizens idolize the constitution and have it form a pivotal part of their lives the ideology behind its making and the one that exists in contemporary America are two distinctly different things. The ideology of the founding fathers shall be analyzed, specifically the way that they envisaged a Republic, and America is now viewed, by its own people, and outsiders as a great Democracy.”
