Has the U.S. gotten rid of the Constitution in any way?
Really the constitution is just a document that defines the powers of the three branches of government. The only "rights" listed in it are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. The framers of the constitution realized this and added the bill of rights amending the constitution. There are various laws that expand or restrict government power beyond the constitution itself as well as controversial things that take away certain rights for certain people (abortion and state executions being two of the biggest and most obvious) which may be what your friend was referring to or he could just be some nut that hates the U.S. government no matter what they do like Korriken and Angry-Hatter and morefngdbs. And I really hate to say this because I know that you'll mostly just get answers like Korriken's but this really should have been asked here since that's really what that thread is about.
work in progress. give it 20-30 more years before it finds its way into a landfill.
That's bullshit and you know it Korriken.
