      If this is Terminator scenario, the good guys in the future would have to send someone back in time to eliminate Donald.

        Thankfully, the cover isn't red and black. Were that the case, then we could be sure of being revisited by TGN's own Lazarus.

        This isn't a dress rehearsal. Enjoy yourself. There's no do-over.

            I downloaded this book to my Kobo last night, so I expect to get started on it this evening.

            A CNN opinion piece mentioned this book earlier today.

                  Putsch 2

                  The perp behind Putsch 1 went to jail and wrote a book. Had he been shot, the literary world would be a very different place, and with less blondes.

                      In Canada we jurists largely believe in the 'living tree' theory of constitutionalism. Meaning that interpretations grow and develop.

                      In the USA the great Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr. included this in his decision in Missouri v Holland:
                      With regard to that we may add that when we are dealing with words that also are a constituent act, like the Constitution of the United States, we must realize that they have called into life a being the development of which could not have been foreseen completely by the most gifted of its begetters. It was enough for them to realize or to hope that they had created an organism; it has taken a century and has cost their successors much sweat and blood to prove that they created a nation. The case before us must be considered in the light of our whole experience and not merely in that of what was said a hundred years ago. The treaty in question does not contravene any prohibitory words to be found in the Constitution. The only question is whether [252 U.S. 416, 434] it is forbidden by some invisible radiation from the general terms of the Tenth Amendment. We must consider what this country has become in deciding what that amendment has reserved.
                      Generally it is the arch conservatives who oppose this and attempt to interpret the constitution based on what the original writers intended. This of course has led to decisions such as Heller which overruled prior jurisprudence and has led to the expansion of 2nd Amendment 'rights'.

                        I agree the author's point on this "the government is supposed to work for living people"

                          So many of my American friends view the words of the constitution written nearly 250 years ago as…..

                          I am trying to find the right words. But they figure if the Founding Fathers wrote it that way then by darn that is all there is!! Do not question, interpret or modernize!!
