Judge Richard Posner swore:

"I, Richard Posner, do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter. So help me God."

Judge Posner can no longer abide by this oath.  Therefore he must resign.

He recently stated "Eighteenth-century guys, however smart, could not foresee the culture, technology, etc., of the 21st century. Which means that the original Constitution, the Bill of Rights, and the post–Civil War amendments (including the 14th), do not speak to today."

Judge Posner does not believe that the First Amendment, guaranteeing the Freedom's of Speech and Religion, speaks today.

Judge Posner does not believe that the Fourteenth Amendment, with its Due Process and Equal Protection clauses, speaks today.

Judge Posner on the Constitution and the Bill of Rights: "In short, let's not let the dead bury the living."

“I see absolutely no value to a judge of spending decades, years, months, weeks, day, hours, minutes, or seconds studying the Constitution, the history of its enactment, its amendments, and its implementation."

Judge Posner must resign.  No man who finds "no value" in studying the Constitution of the United States should serve in its judiciary.  The citizens of the United States of America should demand this resignation, as should members of every branch of government.

Abraham Lincoln said it more skillfully:

“We the people are the rightful masters of both Congress and the courts, not to overthrow the Constitution but to overthrow the men who pervert the Constitution.” 

Richard Posner has perverted the Constitution.  The Constitution is the founding document enumerating his power as a US Judge.  Again, he does not believe in even spending "seconds" to study it.  Pure contempt.  There can be no higher disregard for the founding document of the United States of America.

Resignation is the only option.
