What items on my list do you support? What items don't you support?
Call them whatever you want. Call them "TheCause's crazy slogans" if you wish.
You were the one who labeled them "traditional values." That's really the main problem I have: the suggestion that just because things are traditional, they must be good.
I wonder how much you've thought these through beyond the slogans. How, for example, would you suggest that I, as a lawyer, could help preserve the Constitution?
Well, if you focus on the amendments:
You may have the opportunity to protect the 4th, 5th, 6th, 7th and 8th amendments on a regular basis. Of course the other amendments might be applicable as well.
I also think the preamble says it well:
We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity...
And there are many ways that you can ensure that the constitution continues to establish justice, insure domestic tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general welfare, and secure the blessings of liberty to you and your posterity.
So you're good with ACLU lawyers then? And those of us who want to use the Eighth Amendment to ban the death penalty?
And I was asking you to tell me what those ways are exactly. In your mind.
