I do think there are good arguments to be made both ways on this.
I do consider myself to be somewhat obstinate about it, but this has been my take on it, right or wrong.
Imho, we must always be very judicious with respect to the United States Constitution. We must always protect and defend the original intent of it, as a treasured and irreplaceable document that has allowed us to hold our hopes, our dreams and protects us from harm. This is no limp-wristed promise. Our Founding Fathers realized and accepted the retribution that might follow them when they determined to begin this revolution and we must not disappoint them.
