You want to adhere to the Constitution? Then try this Clause 12 on for size

With his characteristic aplomb, Mr. Bill Gilmer pitched his grand scheme to return our country to Constitutional fundamentalism, thereby eliminating all fiscal problems.

Since the U.S. has progressed so little in past two centuries, why not take him up on it?

Applying Article I, Section 8, Clause 12 will abolish the standing army (not to mention an Air Force that is nowhere mentioned) and the attendant costs for this expensive budget line.

Who knew that fixing our debt problem could be so simple?
