    Your post is so idiotic I will not waste my time responding to your post other than telling you how idiotic your post is.
    Moderator's Warning:
    US Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg to Egyptians: Look to the ConstitutionsAnd your post is so baiting that I will not waste my time responding to it other than tell you how baiting it is.

    If you have an argument, make the argument. If you don't have an argument, don't waste our time and bandwidth with this crap.

    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Where is it said the job of a Justice to sell systems of government to other nations?
    Also, we need to legalize recreational drugs and prostitution.

    Where is it the job to the justice to find fault in the document she is supposed to be making court room decisions on? What she is doing amounts to saying is our constitution sucks, you don't wanna use it. You wouldn't trust a police officer to fully perform his duty if he spoke out against every law.So why would a judge be any different?

    I think, considering the fact that it is the job of a Supreme Court justice to know the Constitution, the bodies of law which reside beneath it, and the judicial precedent which precedes their confirmation by the Senate, Ginsberg is highly qualified to find such faults.

    Many founding documents for modern governments around the world trace their roots back to our constitution. Pointing to them as better examples is more about pointing to more modern, better-fleshed documents than it is about saying ours sucks.
    I'm already gearing up for Finger Vote 2014.

    Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.

    Seeing how we have an amendment process for amending the constitution our constitution is not dated.

    The last such amendment was ratified almost 20 years ago, and it was one that had been percolating about for over 200 years. The last one before that was over 40 years ago.

    Not only is our constitution dated, it is this very dating that Thomas Jefferson was concerned about.

    The constitution is not supposed to be amended on a whim.Nor should it be amended on a whim.It is the supreme law of the land.

    Uhhh no. That's not what she's saying. Ginsburg's job is to interpret the Constitution. Not to sell it to other countries. Hence why your McDonald's analogy fails.
