So, let’s talk about the U.S. Constitution, its many virtues, its supposed weaknesses and the desirability, by some, to change the document out of which this country grew and that is so central to the American way of life. Does it still work? Does it continue to serve the needs and interests of contemporary society? Are we witnessing a breakdown in our politics and our political system related to the interpretation of a document outdated by over 200 years of time and events that have altered our Country and our way of life? The Supremacy Clause, a provision in Article Six, Clause 2 of the Constitution states: This Constitution, and the Laws of the United States which shall be made in pursuance thereof; and all treaties made, or which shall be made, under the authority of the United States, shall be the supreme law of the land…..which, doesn’t leave much “wiggle room,” or does it? Join us on Wednesday at Einstein’s Circle when we sort it out and guided by Attorneys Paul Rosen and Tom McGuire look at where we are and where we might be headed in the years to come.
