George W. Bush was quoted as saying that the U.S. Constitution is "just a piece of paper." This may be true since the North American Union came into being during his presidency. If it is "just a piece of paper" and has lost all of its power, then they have no obligation to follow the Bill of Rights or any of the rest of it, right? If they are not following that Constitution, then are they following ANY constitution? Also, to take it to our level, if the Constitution is no long valid, then we don't have to follow it in our fight against them, do we?
What would it mean for us and for them?
And the 'papers' that give the President their power are just 'pieces of paper' the votes that put him in office are just 'pieces of paper'. Laws are just 'pieces of paper'. US Currency is just 'pieces of paper'. His illustrious Harvard degree is just a 'piece of paper'.
We, as Americans in concept and belief; must adhere to the words written on the piece of paper our 'presidents' consider worthless. If we are to be Americans - that piece of paper must be followed; else we are not Americans.It is what defines us.
Defines us as a people - and said definition freed people to accomplish better things that serving elite masters. In turn that has served ALL of humanity, countless times over and over.
It is what people have died over time and again.
It was the basis for the Greatest nation on earth - the environment it created has given us countless innovation - like these machines we are typing on now - that are only pieces of plastic, silicon, copper, and such.
It's only a piece of paper if you see it that way - to many of us, it is a creed and a belief we will die to protect the concepts of.
