A growing number of Democrats believe that it’s time to update the Constitution, according to a new poll from YouGov. The company surveyed 1,000 adults, asking them if the document had “held up well as the basis for out government and laws” or if it needed to be updated through a new constitutional convention. The poll found that 41% of Democrats are in favor of changing the Constitution.
43% of Democrats, 68% of Republicans, and 57% of Americans in general believe that the Constitution is fine as it is.
YouGov didn’t ask respondents how they would change the Constitution, but we can make some guesses based on recent liberal trends. They despise the Second Amendment, so that would have to either be repealed or modified. They support “hate speech” laws and loathe religious freedom, so they’d love to get in there and muck around with the First Amendment as well.
It’s not inherently un-American to want to change the Constitution, of course. There is a burgeoning effort among conservative libertarians to organize a Convention of States for this very purpose. Contrary to Democrats, though, these people want to use Article V to push back against federal overreach, limitless spending, and widespread government corruption. They don’t believe the Constitution has outlived its usefulness, they believe it is being summarily ignored by the power brokers in Washington.
Democrats, on the other hand, are turning against the principles upon which the country was founded. They see democracy as a weapon of the tyrannical majority. When someone says “founding fathers,” they hear “racist white guys.” They don’t want to improve America with a nip here and a tuck there; they want a revolution that will make the U.S. more like their favorite European nations.
And why should anyone be surprised? Millennials were the first generation of American schoolchildren to be taught a cynical version of our country’s history. Liberals didn’t just strip patriotism out of the books – they replaced it with a curriculum designed to make kids despise their own country. From the evils of Columbus to the evils of the founding fathers to the evils of slavery to the evils of today, they have brainwashed millions of children right under our noses. And it’s still happening. In fact, it’s getting worse.
What happens when you deliberately turn a nation’s citizens against their own country?
Gee, what do you think?
