Yeah great document, the US Constitution, but let's face it, in contemporary USA it's become a sort of diaper for the otherwise morally and ethically incontinent. Using it to debate and analyze, then justify the treating of non-US citizens like shit, is worse than idiotic behavior, and if nothing changes, isn't so far from being despicable.
So let's stop using the Constitution as a crutch. Look in the mirror, folks, have a meaningful conversation with yourselves.
I left the US for Europe 20 years ago. At that time I was pissed and disappointed by America's big heavy boots, stomping and dissing any non-american entity that crossed its radar. But somehow, in the same tone as some of the posters here, I was a little bit proud to be American.
Now, forget it. The US is seen as the Axis of Evil in much of the (rest of the) world that I love to visit. I can't disagree. I'm ashamed.
