The Constitution has been amended 28 times so, obviously, it does change.
I know that some on this site believe the founding fathers were infallible but alas, they were only humans. I doubt very much that they could see the future.
The basic Constitution is a strong and powerful document but if it was perfect, why did we keep amending it, and remember, even the original document was amended with the Bill of Rights before it was signed in 1789.
That's bullshit Frank, we just want to see it changed through the amendment process rather than using the courts. The framers had to have the constitution ratified by 3/4 of the states, the same with the existing amendments, in modern America the courts are used which means that 5 unelected officials can bend the constitution to their will and the people have no recourse because the justices are untouchable. No ratification process, no recall through elections, and no check or balance placed upon them by the powers of the other two branches. It is questionable that the founders ever intended for judicial review, it is clearly not found in the constitution.
