If the Constitution is outdated, I'm sure you wouldn't mind being denied the right to vote, the police arresting you or searching your house without probable cause and then beating a confession out of you and then imprisoning you without a trial or without legal representation. Before suggesting that the U.S. Constitution be tossed in the garbage as a faded relic, you may wish to consider the many ways it protects you on a daily basis. People residing in remote areas still receive mail and their kids still ride public school buses, not because politicians are benevolent, but because the outdated Constitution requires it. The Constitution's protections appear in the form of a ballot, a newspaper, and "yes", as a privately owned firearm. The U.S. Constitution has helped build the strongest nation on earth in a remarkably short period. When your personal constitution had provided over 200 years of better service, we'll consider adopting your's.
