Cracks in the wall

Lately I've been feeling somewhat disillusioned- the world seems to be very rapidly heading towards an unpleasant implosion. Kevin over at Smallest Minority seems to be in a similar mood.

A big part of the problem is the way that the Constitution in the US is being eviscerated these days. It really does seem that the people in charge either don't give a damn about the document or else they're too blinded by their own agenda to understand simple terms like "shall not be infringed" or "Congress shall make no law...abridging the freedom of speech", etc, etc.

I'm not an American citizen but the US is important to me- and to watch the way it's changing at the moment is painful. Seems to me that a group of people who can actually read and understand the Constitution need to come along and repeal a whole bunch of laws that clearly and plainly run counter to it.

But what are the odds of that ever happening?
