    The Basic Law serves the same purpose as a constitution. Or at least a very similar purpose.

    Exactly, and it doesn't even matter, it is a piece of paper. Its value and power rely on men enforcing its scribbles. The US (or any other nation's) constitution is in no way any different. Aptranger has problems with realities.

    It doesn't, it is a fairy tale book of private nature. If it was a constitution it would fulfill two basic condition, firstly it would be verifiably true, and it would be signed by anyone it affects.

    Deutscher Irrationalismus strikes again, purely philosophical thus unscientific concotions can not be enforced. It is like saying one wants to enforce Harry Potter, or Pumuckl the Gnome. The US constitution would allow popular sovereignty, but the people there less and less are interested in it, whereas overhere the HRE feudalism, enriched with some II. and III. Reich era elements from the beginning on rules any popular sovereignty out.
