US Constitution should be amended because USA is no more 'by the people, for the people and of the people'. Its a country ran by Special Interest Groups and the Billionaires, not real people of USA.
When People speak, they are arrested and taken to Jail, while Supreme Court says Money has a right of Freedom of Speech and Expression also just like people. What a B.S. ...!
Supreme Court Justices should be replaced.
