should we obey WHATEVER the Constitution decrees, or not, or some of the time but not all the time, or what? what makes the opinions of a select group of people hundreds of years ago inherently correct or right or good for sure? should people swear to uphold the Constitution, or should they instead simply uphold righteousness and goodness irrespective of the Constitution or its amendments, each of which is unendingly ambiguous? 'A little rebellion now and then is a good thing, and as necessary in the political realm as storms are in the physical.' - Thomas Jefferson, primary author of the Constitution...which frees or enslaves us...the debate rages on.

The question mark is appropriate because those are unrelated. This meme is a mess

the fair question remains lingering.

perhaps you could clarify what the question is or what statement you are trying to make. It is always dangerous to view the Constitution through your own morality. We all do it, but not so blatantly.

what im asking is the following:

should we obey WHATEVER the Constitution decrees, or not, or some of the time but not all the time, or what? what makes the opinions of a select group of people hundreds of years ago inherently correct or right or good for sure? should people swear to uphold the Constitution, or should they instead simply uphold righteousness and goodness irrespective of the Constitution or its amendments, each of which is unendingly ambiguous?

that's not the same as viewing the constitution through my own morality.

" should they instead simply uphold righteousness and goodness"
That is a Utopian world, even if you are good and righteous your neighbor isnt. Man has a duty and the Constitution is the closest thing that man has created to ensure some level of fairness. The framers were well aware of what governments can become, even if it isn't evident from the document itself, it is from their other writtings. Today, in most of the world you can be thrown in jail for what you say. "Enlightned" Nations, Great Britain, Germany, Canada etc

i hear ya, freedom of speech is a tricky thing, it's like being able to spit on and burn the flag sort of makes it more worth saluting, whereas if you're forced to admire it and treat it with dignity and so called respect and so forth and if you don't you're killed or tortured or imprisoned makes it not as worth saluting, and yet how john wayne said, 'well you can burn the American flag my friend, just make sure you wrap yourself up in it first'...sort of thing, i think the same thing about 'upholding righteousness and goodness' cuz WHAT DOES that entail, who gets to say, it's ambiguous, yet doesn't mean there isn't right and wrong for all i know though...it's like saying behave...ummm...how, what's the right thing to do in every situation, etc...some will view the idea of no longer following the constitution but a different framework as treasonous, but if the constitution isn't what's best than wouldn't it be patriotic? etc. it seems it all depends on stuff no one knows. lot of guesswork, so they band around the constitution or laws and votes and so forth and concepts like the needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few or the one and they go from there...i don't know for sure what the right thing to do is, but i doubt verily it's to do whatever the Constitution decrees, regardless of outcome or results, sort of like when they don't let evidence in court that was obtained unconstitutionally even if it shows a dude murdering a hundred babies on a vhs tape, they call it inadmissable evidence if a warrant wasn't obtained for example for the cop to go into the house to get it, and so on, and who says twelve jurors is the best way to determine 'reasonable doubt' and who gets to say what that is, etc...its quite a squall quagmire, life!
