I appreciate the sentiments, and I love my country too. But hope mixed with facing reality is always a good combination. Saying there are systemic problemsā€”which there clearly areā€”is not slam on the Constitution, which is inspired by God and a model for the whole world. The Constitution isn't the only system at work in our country. And as we've seen in the past year, the Constitution itself is not all-powerful. It depends on the integrity of the people who have sworn to defend it, in state governments as well as federal. I keep hoping that when the Constitution is hanging by a thread, members of the Church will be protecting it instead of swinging at it with scimitars.

Clarification. The ā€œConstitutional Conventionā€ met in 1787. The Constitution was ratified by enough states to make it the law of the land in 1789.
