Your understand of the Founding is flawed. The Founders and Framers would call that tyranny. Tyranny can exist from a single person, from a majority of the people, as well as from a piece of paper. The Framers and Founders understood this, thus there are certain checks and balances within our system to try to prevent any person, people, or paper from gaining too much power and therefore becoming tyrannical.
Don't you dare get me wrong and start putting words in my mouth - the Constitution is the law of the land and should be honored and adhered to at all times.
But executing those who do not adhere to it, is not adhering to the Constitution. The proper method is to vote those guys out of office.
Start executing people on those grounds and we're no better than Iraq during Saddam Hussein, or current day Iran (or Iran during the Shah's time), or the USSR under Stalin.
You, sir, are an idiot and I have basically decided I will take everything you say with only a grain of salt.
