Political Philosophy - Post-Constitutional Society

I would propose that The United States is becoming a post-constitutional society. I believe that it is possible our nation is fast approaching the end of the constitutional era.

In 1973 Ronald Reagan said "Our constitution is a document that protects the people from government." I sometimes wonder how much longer that will remain true.

Every day our Constitution, our "supreme law of the land", seems to hold less power than the day before. Realistically, with corrupt people, we will see an end to the constitutional era. Inevitably, without the foundation of conservative ideals, our system must fail.
