Welcome to The Corner, David!
Glad to have you. I must confess that I don’t quite understand your argument. If social conservatives fail to amend the Constitution, they will have made it easier to amend the Constitution? How does that follow? Or they will have made it clear that the Constitution can be amended? Presumably people are already aware of this possibility. Are we supposed to worry about the “anti-American left” rewriting the Constitution? The left already does that, from the bench. I do not believe that it was a mistake for the Founders to include a provision for amending the Constitution, as David seems to. The mere possibility that it might be amended in bad ways by leftists–assuming that they would bother to use the formal amendment process–certainly does not strike me as a sensible reason for acting as though the amendment process were not available.
I await David’s explanation of his cryptic reference to “alternative means.”
