Megyn Kelly Challenges Professor Who Wants America to ‘Give Up’ U.S. Constitution

Comment by Jim Campbell, Citizen Journalist, Oath Keeper and Patriot.

What was certainly a well reasoned thought provoking interview by Megan Kelly below sounded reasonable until the Judge weighed in a pretty well scuttled Professor Seidman’s arguments.

Not surprisingly, I’m for the strict adherence to the Constitution using the Amendment process to bare when times change and people desire a new Amendment.  Making it a difficult procedure is a good one. 

That’s my story and I’m Sticking to it, I’m J.C. and I approve this message.

Many Americans were shocked to learn about Georgetown University Professor Louis Michael Seidman’s advocation for the U.S. to abandon the Constitution — the central document that has helped spawn America’s growth and progression for hundreds of years. As previously reported, the constitutional expert recently noted his belief (via an op-ed) that a blind allegiance to the outdated document is perilous.

On Friday, he defended his controversial views about some purportedly “evil” provisions in the Constitution in an interview with Fox News’ Megyn Kelly.

Similar to his statements in his New York Times piece, Seidman argued that it is misguided to follow the advice of men who lived centuries ago.

“This is our country. We live in it. We have the right to have the kind of country that we want,” he told Kelly. “I’m not very happy with having a bunch of folks who have been dead for over 200 years…telling us what kind of country we have.”

While he admitted that the Founding Fathers were right about many sentiments, he also doubled-down on the fact that the Constitution includes some elements that he has described as “evil.” Kelly countered his argument, challenging that the amendment process was foreseen by the Founders and that changes to the document are more-than possible. Thus, she asked why abandoning it is a necessity.

Seidman responded by explaining how difficult making amendments can be, calling out the process as one of the biggest problems with the U.S. Constitution.

“Of all the constitutions in the world, the American Constitution is the most difficult to amend,” he proclaimed. “It’s only been amended 27 times — only 17 times if you don’t count the Bill of Rights.”

  1. This is ALL Obama’s hands in this. Who ever said anything about abandoning our constitution until that Kenyan commie snake slithered his way into the white house?

  2. It’s hard to amend the Constitution. Well DUH! That was the entire POINT of the process as made clear by the Founders 230 years ago! Changes must not be made lightly or for reasons based upon sudden emotion. Of COURSE the left think that’s a bad idea!! Everything the left does/recommends is based on the emotion of the moment, because their ideas can never stand up to reasoned, rational observation.
    Funny that this leftist believes the US should not be governed by men dead for 200 years. After all, you can BET he’d want the nation governed by men dead for the past 75+ years or so. Lenin and Marx come to mind. But that’s DIFFERENT, of course. Cause they were GOOD and CARING men, not greedy capitalists!
    If I were one of the unsuspecting parents whose child was being taught by this clown I’d demand my money back.
