November 30, 1935 - Editorial - Your Job and the Constitution, by George Lorimer

A prominent New Deal senator is quoted as saying that constitutional objections will be forgotten before next year's presidential campaign. "Nobody knows what the issues will be, but we can lick them on constitutionality. They'll be ready to drop that." He is right in surmising that nobody knows at this moment exactly what issues will be most emphasized six to eight months from now. Public opinion changes rapidly. But the gentleman is more than a little brash when he says that constitutional issues will be forgotten so soon. On the contrary, we doubt whether they ever will be forgotten as long as the Republic endures.

By frequent innuendo, the country has been told that its Constitution is outmoded, but is not told why or how. (pg. 22)
