Jim Sterling's hate of the constitution is well recorded. It was discussed on multiple occasions, most notably on "Podtoid 169: Why Did I Say I'd Burn The Constitution?".
On Episode 239, he declared, that he wouldn't have done half the things he's done, if he worried about what some Washington fat-cat has decided is illegal or what some hypocritical priest told him is immoral or what some fancy, medical degree-having doctor says is harmful or what some highfaluting professor of physics says is impossible.
He goes on to say "This is America, Jonathan, right, and in this country, in this institution, in this land of DREAMS, my opinion is far above your facts and your laws and your sense of right and wrong. Is this not the greatest nation on Earth, Jonathan? Is this NOT the country founded by kings? Is this not the envy of the human fucking race, I ask you! Get in your underpants and ram the shit out of some kids!"
