Life with no Constitution

“Life with no Constitution,” Carmel Pine Cone—May 13, 2022

Recently your editorial asked, “What would this country be like if we didn’t have the Constitution?” The answer is that it would be like parents having no rights over what their children are taught in schools, and their 12-year-old kids allowed to get injections with no parental consent. It’d be like the rights to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness don’t apply to babies even after they’re born because Mom doesn’t want them and they mysteriously die and no police are allowed to investigate (AB 2223 infanticide bill). It’d be like no ID needed to vote in an election. It’d be like no border security and lots of fentanyl and human trafficking at our southern border, Wait! It’d be like all the progressive policies by Biden, Pelosi and Panetta today.
