Odd thing about these "Constitutional Conservatives" a.k.a. "Original Intent" proponents.
They ignore the fact that the Constitution was "amended" 27 times.
The first 10 Amendments, the so-called "Bill of Rights", were created by the original "Original Intent" people, circa 1791.
The so-called "conservatives" also ignore a core principal, or "Original Intent", that being the ability to amend the Constitution, which is enshrined in the Article V of the original document.
Thus, we see the fallacy in their position.
It was the "Original Intent" of the Founding Fathers to provide a means of altering the Document as the People required, or even to allow for their own fallibility in drafting the original.
