    So none of the 600 from the prior 2 Presidents did conceptually what this one did? Hard to fathom.

    There is a difference between not wanting the rule of law and wanting to change bad laws.

    I don't think you want to defend every word of the constitution. There is a reason that there is a process for amendment.

    I am not sure why you are always so terse. It's ok to just converse. Anyway, since you are acknowledge amendments, you accept that we've decided to change constitution. Here is an example that we aren't as high on anymore:

    Sorry about my terseness.

    Perhaps you should read up on the 3/5ths clause. It's intent is one of the most misunderstood events in our history as a country.

    It's intent was to get Southern slave-holding states to support & ratify the Constitution. Anything else is window dressing.
