It produced the most successful nation on the planet, can't be all bad.Can't say I have a lot of respect for your Constitution. Not least because it's produced Trump, and assisted him in becoming President. The fact that it led to his Presidency seems to be a sign that there's something wrong with it.
Exactly. They have no idea they have no idea what morality is because they already assume it oozes from their pores. There can only be black and white certainty or they could be shocked out of their altered reality and feel all the guilt they were made to feel as children.Anyone who votes Dem is a traitor to the Constitution so they're actually upholding their oaths.
I’m confident they know what it says, I think they don’t care.
They're not anti American, they're just stupid and gullible. They buy into every insane idea presented by every lunatic with a youtube channel. The one cohesive trait they all share is absolute certainty that every major news origination is part of the vast conspiracy to destroy the US. It's more than a little sad.
I've said before that the right's version of patriotism is about flags and symbols, which to them is really about tribalism (nationalism). Not about anything of substance. Certainly not democracy. "Freedom" is just a nice sounding word to them. Anyway, the Constitution is just another symbol to them, like the flag. What's actually in it is pretty much irrelevant. Which is why they never actually read it. Including the ones who carry it around in their pockets, for show.
the consitution was literally forgotten for the first 100+ years of the country's existence. It actually wasn't known where it was...until discovered in some storage closet, essentially, in rather bad shape.
There isn't much history of this document as being "Sacred!" ...it was this discovery that really prompted the enshrining of it, Archives, and the idea of putting it in a museum, much less public view. It literally hadn't been seen by anyone for decades.
I think it's also an indication that Trump is losing his power within the party.
I think he has lost his clout with all but the most fat right wing followers. Seems like the last straw was Trump announcing his candidacy for 2024. From what I understand, a lot of Trump followers equated Trumps announcement with Trump admitting that he lost in 2020.I'm sure many right-wing outlets are desperately hoping Trump has lost his clout. Can you imagine if he wins the primary? The Dems would have a field day with just this quote, let alone the January 6th attack. "Trump wants to violate the Constitution to force himself back into office." Now, Trumpists and hardcore conservatives might see this as a positive (a few of our forum members genuinely want a GOP dictatorship), but it'd absolutely torch his chances for the 'moderate' vote.

I don't think people were upset by his announcement either. I think the obvious reason for his declining support is people don't like losing. Trump's problem is that he's good at winning GOP primaries and terrible at winning general elections.Let's hope so, at least.
I'm not sure how many were truly upset by Trump announcing his candidacy. Even in the Trumpist camp, there's a middle ground of people who think he was 'robbed' of victory in 2020 but accept that he's never going to be reinstated. They're just convinced he's going to come roaring back in 2024 despite all evidence to the contrary.
