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 problems—which there clearly are—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 “Constitutional Convention” met in 1787. The Constitution was ratified by enough states to make it the law of the land in 1789.
