    That would require a convention and a majority vote to happen...

    While it's possible.. it's also not very likely.
    George Washington didn't use his freedom of speech to win the war with Britain... He shot them.

    Whch brings up the question:
    If the Constitution is flawed as the basis of protection for our rights because it can be amended in such a way to allow the removal of said rights, what would those that make this argument suggest be placed in its stead?

    Well, since the Constitution doesn't tell me to do that your point is irrelevant.

    The Constitution has its basis in natural law, which is what you are advocating, so I don't understand what the problem is. So long as we actually follow it our individual negative liberties will be assured.

    It would be nice if the people were in power instead of the capitalist class that is currently ruling.

    The Constitution. Not a Mob. Not a Despot. Not an Oligarchy.

    And who should write that constitution?
    The poor complain; they always do
    But thatís just idle chatter
    Our system brings reward to all
    At least all those who matter.

    Only because it's easier to ignore the constitution rather than amend it. Politicians would vote to cover their butts and expand their power - every single time.

    Oh, and here's a comic strip making fun of your position:

    Natural law doesn't need a "magical" piece of paper written in the 18th century and administered by a bunch of power-hungry bureaucrats.

    Clearly it would have to be a god. Or at least a wizard of some sort...
