Is our Constitution in danger?

The Constitution continues to be a roadblock to the fundamentally changing of America. I believe liberal progressives are frustrated by this document and are determined to modify, if not replace it. The globalism of the UN seeks to establish anti-blasphemy laws that prevent criticism of Islam. Was the infamous anti-Islamic movie (and its furious reaction) a ploy to bring up for debate the legal free speech of the First Amendment?

Was "Fast and Furious" a gun trafficking ploy to bring into question the right to bear arms of the Second Amendment? Are the fatalities (U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens, border agent Brian Terry and the many other unnamed citizens of the U.S. and Mexico) of both of these events collateral damage or "bumps in the road" in the debate? Conspiracy theory? Or real threats to our freedoms?

So many questions. I hope The Associated Press will give us an objective analysis soon, but I won't be holding my breath.
