As we motored home after test-driving potential candidates for our new vehicle, we passed a political sign next to the highway. It is located on private property in a very red corner of New Mexico. It read: God, Family, Second Amendment, Constitution, Trump.
I pondered those in this country who believe the U.S. Constitution, written 230+ years ago, is perfect and unalterable. (Never mind those twenty-seven amendments, of which the Second is the most sacrosanct.)
To them I would say:
Imagine you have just purchased a brand new Ford F150 truck, and the dealer handed you an owner’s manual for a Model T.
We are not living in George Washington’s United States of America, so why are we still using his owner’s manual?
