    My 2 cents....

    I'm a little uncomfortable with the idea of using the Constitution to take away rights. The Constitution should only be used to protect rights. I would rather see an end to all donations to politicians and political campaigns. Get the dirty money out of politics...whether it is corporate money or private money. Make the votes matter....not the money.

    You are absolutely correct on this one. It is time to end these votes on constitutional rights for minority groups. That in itself sounds unconstitutional. I don't think the founding fathers had this in mind.
