Because the constitution isn't good enough.

New Hampshire Republicans sponsor bill requiring justification from the Magna Carta.

I originally thought this was a joke, but apparently it isn't:

New Hampshire Democratic Party spokesman Ray Buckley said he was “mostly speechless” when he heard about the bill. “I appreciate all the hard work the Republican legislators are putting into the effort to make them look like extremists,” he said. “Saves us the trouble.”

Text of the bill: “All members of the general court proposing bills and resolutions addressing individual rights or liberties shall include a direct quote from the Magna Carta which sets forth the article from which the individual right or liberty is derived”

Ladies and gentlemen, I bring you the text of the Magna Carta, from which you can derive your own opinion about its suitability.

Per rule #8: I think these NH republicans are either complete idiots or complete morons, whichever is lower on the IQ scale.
