    I'm not in the least bit shocked that this is the stance of National Review and every publication and person of their ilk.

    Of COURSE these myopic, arrogant, self-absorbed and self-deluded souls couldn't be MORE WRONG!

    The Constitution and the Bill of Rights were written with the intent of being in affect, a living, breathing extension of America and its citizens and flexible enough so that changes could be made to it without our country crumbling.  The notion that NOTHING can be done is wrong and meant to silence, discourage, disempower and regain control of the current status quo.  These are NOT words from citizens who care for this country and its people IN TRUTH.  They are a disgusting blight on the body politic.

    We have faced far greater obstacles to the progress (for the better) of this country.  We abolished slavery (13th Amendment), got women the right to vote (19th Amendment), secured the vote for 18 year olds (26th Amendment)...and others of course.

    It's not going to be an easy or quick battle but we can and must change the status quo.

    When people even begin to talk about massacred children dying so that others may be "free" - we have hit yet another all-time low.  We must loudly proclaim how sick their way of thinking and inaction really is.

    "For all those whose cares have been our concern, the work goes on, the cause endures, the hope still lives, and the dream shall never die." Ted Kennedy 1980 DNC Keynote Speech
