The uncomfortable question of rights
The uncomfortable question of rights
Mike Meyer

It is my belief that our Constitutional documents are are holding up just fine. The people are failing at their job. When less than half of people of voting age vote for representatives and in the general election of the president, doesn’t it seem counter intuitive to blame the issue on the documents that grant these rights in the first place? It seems to me that the general populace has just become complacent in the fact that the world will continue on without their vote and are happy to go along with whatever happens as long as their “voice” is heard say on a social platform? When the platform for voicing concern or disdain for current established rules or social norms doesn’t have anything to do with how the laws that provide such a platform are used or written doesn’t that just negate the voice? We can rant and rave in the media (i’ll include social platform of choice here also as media) but in reality we aren’t doing anything but crying instead of writing to and voting in our representatives that interpret our documents. I would also like to point out I am a firm believer in the filter bubble theory and do lack a college education. I also appreciate your response and ability to remain so articulate. I am also going to point out how important interpretation is because the sentence that has brought about this conversation is now dwarfed by the words that have stemmed from it. ~thumbs up~
