    I Liked Mr. Amar's artical and banderson's comment. But I would add a word of warning. Recent decisions by the supreme court have put our system of constitutional government as serious risk. We may well need to use the constitution's amendatory powers to mitigate the increasing dominance of big dollar campaign contributions. The Citzens United case has introduced a corrosive influence on the democratic process. If this is not soon ended we can kiss our representative democracy goodby as we have a plutocracy imposed upon use by powerfull wealthy combinations.

    Mr. Amar, whoever you are, thank you for reminding us all that despite all our differences, "We the people" are the power source for not only America, but the entire world! That power source is as valid today as it was then, something that begins in each of us as an idea. Pray that it will never be doused. Thank you
