Unfortunately, it will take years of legal proceedings, millions of taxpayer dollars, and also millions of dollars of private industry and private money adapting to changes while also making law abiding citizens less safe.
For once I wish the politicians would stuff their damn platforms and remember they represent us the people. Frankly, I am glad for the Republican primary challenges that keep happening. Too bad the Dems don't have their own version of the Tea Party trying to clean house.
I find it funny how many say "vote for the republican reguardless of his record" and at the same time promote the Tea Party movement. You simply cannot do both! Internal strife is what will eventually make the party stronger as it evolves towards the views its constituants have (much like the human immune system and how it over comes illness).
If the republican party makes the right changes it will make the democratic party irrelivant much as the republican party was until about two weeks ago.
Your frustration is shared. The Constitution does not bend to suit EITHER parties individual political goals...their political goals are supposed to be to support and defend the Constitution.
How is that confusing or do they simply choose to ignore it?!?
Let it not be said that no one cared, that no one objected once its realized that our liberties and wealth are in jeopardy.
