Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

The problem with the US Constitution is that its almost impossible to change it, so it hasn't been amended as problems became apparent. The last successful amendment was in 1992, and it took 202 years for it to be passed. An amendment prohibiting child labour, for instance, has been pending since 1924, with no sign of it being passed... It is hardly surprising that a document, largely the product of 18th. century thinking, is no longer fit for purpose.
