    US Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg to Egyptians: Look to the Constitutions

    "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"

    Cicero Marcus Tullius

    The US constitution was not created perfect. The fact that it has been amended so many times shows that quite clearly.

    Should a supreme court justice call our founding fathers wise?

    Look at the end of his post. See where is says "j/k"? That stands for "just kidding". He was making(and admitedly poor) joke. Let me know if you need any more help with those complicated internet acronyms.

    Well, the founding fathers - being the infallible and all-knowing direct descendants of God and therefore incapable of getting anything wrong - never actually had to wipe their asses. That sort of unpleasantness is left to we mere mortals.

So everything having to do with state's rights and federal government powers would be meaningless to an Egyptian.

    They should look to whatever Constitutions are best for their specific situation, and no American should have such a weak ego as to be insulted they aren't using ours or that one of the most knowledgeable and experienced people in Constitutional law thinks ours isn't best for this situation.
