    Default Happy Constitution Day!

    Everyone shed atleast one tear for our poor bruised founding document today.

    Default Not alone, but merely foremost of a few

    Do I have to weep for the whole document, or can I exclude the seventeenth amendment? The seventeenth amendment is a jerk.

    Meh.

    We've been changing the Constitution since about 3 years after it was drafted.

    People sometimes forget the Bill of Rights are technically "amendments."

    To amend means to change.

    I have no problem with whats been done via the amendment process, its the non amendment changes that hurt. Like the boundless expansion of the government via the commerce clause.

    No, I meant the seventeenth amendment, which provides for the direct election of Senators. I don't like the eighteenth amendment at all, but it was repealed, so I don't worry about it.

    All this reminds me of is that noone pays any attention to the Federalist papers anymore. Probably because it'd be inconvenient to actually understand our constitution's intentions.
