Is the U.S. Constitutional System Broken? - A Debate

Given our political dynamics, many believe features of the constitution have been lost, compromised or ignored. Is that really the case? If so, how has this happened, are we honoring our Founders, is the precious American constitution and the democracy it fostered in danger or is what we are perceiving what the founders wanted and anticipated? A great debate will take place at our September 22nd program that is a must attend as we move toward voting in November.
