Imagine today’s leaders in big wigs and buckled shoes, strutting on the global stage. Ridiculous, right?

Our clothes have changed with the times, but some still cling to a Constitution from the horse-and-buggy era. If we wouldn’t wear centuries-old shoes, why govern our nation with an equally outdated rulebook? …”Would our leaders step into a global summit wearing an 18th-century attire?

If our leaders wouldn’t wear those old outfits, why do they insist on governing our nation with an equally outdated rulebook?

Would they step into a global summit wearing an 18th-century attire?

Modernizing personal appearances but not foundational governance. Many still support a Constitution written in that time. While the idea of leaders wearing 18th-century clothing is seen as absurd, the acceptance of following an 18th-century Constitution is accepted without question.

This isn’t grandma’s sewing circle. The Constitution, with its many amendments, is now like an outfit with too many patches: heavily stitched together and possibly mismatched for today’s world.

Trump Tests the 14th Amendment: Time for a 28th — ‘The Clarification Clause?

“Are we in the business of patching up amendments and ‘stitching’ the 14th like some worn-out sock, or should we aim for a full-system upgrade?”

The 14th Amendment, created post-Civil War, suddenly becomes the spotlight under Trump. It disqualifies candidates engaged in insurrection, rebellion, or aiding enemies. But here’s the catch: enforcing it is a logistical nightmare. Critics exposed its flaws, yet here we are, stuck in legal limbo.

The Amendment Drip. We’ve got 27 amendments. The Bill of Rights — the first ten — were ratified like a bundled package in 1791. Break it down: 17 amendments in over 200 years.

  • The 18th, Take Prohibition fiasco. America got speakeasies and organized crime instead, mob rules! Fast-forward to the 21st Amendment, which repealed the 18th.
  • The 19th, Women Voting. Ratified in 1920, finally lets women vote. The “land of the free” wakes up and realizes half its population should have a say. Women deserve not an echo, but their own voice. Took long enough, didn’t it?
  • The 28th — ‘The Clarification Clause?

The Constitution it’s just a ‘cover band’ that takes on a centuries-old hit, the Twelve Tables of Roman law.

We owe the Romans for pioneering the concept of a public legal code, a principle deeply woven into the U.S. Constitution.

If you won’t believe me, Trust Goggle? Search: [roman twelve tables to today’s bill of rights]

So why not go all the way back to the Roman Twelve Tables? They could be just as effective. Either way, we’re using ancient guidelines for modern problems.

Very different in nature and created over two millennia apart both the Twelve Tables of Roman law and the U.S. Constitution can be broken down into a similar number of key points or topics.

The Twelve Tables didn’t stay static; they evolved into the Corpus Juris Civilis under Justinian I. If Rome could adapt and overhaul its legal code, what’s holding back the U.S. Constitution?

So, while the specifics of the Twelve Tables and the U.S. Constitution are very different, they are both part of a long tradition of human societies attempting to create fair, just, and effective systems of law and governance.


“Just as Nero plucked his strings to the tune of a burning Rome, today’s leaders seem more keen on perfecting their Macarena steps than addressing the raging fires of our times. Don’t give a outdated rulebook to the wrong leader, it might use it on its on advantage.”

14TH AMENDMENT, DONALD TRUMP, SUPREME COURT

However, there may be a silver lining in the weaknesses of the Constitution. While it’s not to say that #Trump is perfect, his willingness to challenge the system is unmatched by any other former or current President. His actions are bringing to light issues that have long been concealed by the government and in this light, the weaknesses of the system, though concerning, is serving as a catalyst for exposing corruption.

14TH AMENDMENT, DONALD TRUMP, SUPREME COURT
