    The Living Constitution Consortium Thomas Jefferson, third President of The United States and Framer of The Constitution, wrote to Samuel Kercheval in 1816, "Let us provide in our constitution for its revision at stated periods. What these periods should be nature herself indicates...and it is for the peace and good of mankind that a solemn opportunity of doing this every nineteen or twenty years should be provided by the constitution, so that it may be handed on with periodical repairs from generation to generation to the end of time, if anything human can so long endure." This group advocates the return to a Living Document view of our founding document and a push for legislation and legislators who do not fear the at times sacrosanct veil which reactionary sectors of our society have protected it with. We push for the acknowledgement that proposals to change our Constitution are not acts of anti-patriotism if not the exact opposite. We stand with Thomas Jefferson and insist on a generationally adept Constitution. We refuse to be enslaved by the beliefs and practices of those legislators and politicians of an age past.
