Wait! We did discuss how the constitution was unjust back in the day, but what about today? To what extent is the limited government created by the founders suitable for addressing today's challenges?
The constitution , to a large extent is able to address the problems and needs of today. Let me explain
Firstly, the constitution specified an efficient and fair way of creating laws. The creation of laws are quite a good way of addressing problems in the US because the congress can just agree on a solution to a problem and create a law making process specified in the constitution.
For example, America could quite easily create a law to combat the problem of climate change. They could create laws that regulate factories and require inspections of factories
I get your point but some may also argue that the constitution to a quite small extent is not able to address today's problems such as Terrorism.
I agree with you. Terrorism is a huge problem today. I really do think we can end terrorism, but not unconstitutionally, because that hasn't ended well for us in the past.
George Bush tried solving terrorism unconstitutional by entering the Iraq war. In the constitution, it states that the congress has the power to enter war, not just the president. The war happened because when Bush first indicated his intention to go to war against Iraq, Congress refused to insist enforcement of Article 1, section 8 of the constitution.
Yeah! US can also withdraw troops from Afghanistan. This wouldn't cause Taliban terrorists to cross the border to fight US soldiers. All the money we spend on war can be spent on poverty, and education. The US constitution has been good for America, but if eliminate unconstitutional decisions, it will be even better.
I think we both can agree that their are many ways to end problems such as terrorism. And it can be done constitutionally. US doesn't need to do unconstitutional things to solve problems. Those decisions only cause division in our unity.
