Emergency Constitution

Recommended Posts

Interesting possibility for a case. I haven't read the entire article, but portions of it look like they could be the S for a "emegerncy constitution" plan. As I understand it the article talks about how Congress should draft a constitution for times of crisis. Rather than being designed to encraoch upon our liberties, it would stop the executive from crushing our liberties. It also talks about the Courts and how they wouldn't be able to do this, I think. Anyways I hope this leads to some fresh cases for late in the year.

Congress can override it itself, which it will, because it lacks a spine in times of crisis. See: patriot act.

 

Unless you fiat a constitutional ammendment, which would be more trouble than it's worth.

 

And your literature base is extremely flimsy.
