Greetings in that Divine and Most Precious Name of Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ!
The constitution is an obstacle, not a shield, to our politicians.
Philosophically, I agree completely I suppose it has always been this way since originally drafted, and I have always wondered considering all the inherent paradoxes and contradictions surrounding the history and evolution of the American Constitution how many Americans almost equate this legal document to be embedded with some kind of Divine Infallibility as they do the Scriptures in the Sola Scripture mentality.
The Constitution has always been a paradox, and contains a written account of the evolution of the American ideal and identity, but we shouldn't exactly think the thing to be Divine. Even in monarchies the power is always invested in the people, the Constitution just shifted the focus of political attention away from monarchs and invested the same Divine Right of Kings to the written documents themselves. The failure of the Constitution is that it is like all human creations, subject and open to individual interpretation.
