If conservatives love the Constitution so much, why do they have a pile of amendments lined up like jets in a holding pattern over LAX?
Why do they want to throw out the entire document except for the Second and Tenth Amendments?
Why have they opposed, tooth-and-nail, attempts by disenfranchised Americans to secure the blessings of liberty for themselves?
Throughout history, conservatives have opposed granting full constitutional rights to people who didn't own property, slaves, women, working people, gays and lesbians, and immigrants. They inevitably lose, but the battle always leaves a permanent scab on the body politic that they pick at for generations, working diligently to reverse the gains that have been made instead of trusting the law of the land that they claim to revere.
