    I am surprised that you have difficulty with the concept.
    Well then hold onto your seat because, for someone who is obviously intelligent, you just posted what looks like a bunch of gobbledy-gook to me.

    "amendments propose actions"??? "no action is automatically constitutional"???

    I have no idea what that means or even what you're referring to. Amendments make law. The may prohibit actions, or they may compel action or both. But regardless, even if you were right I still have no idea of what the relevance is to what I said. The fact remains that amendments passed according to constitutional requirements are constitutional.

    SCOTUS gets to make decisions concerning how a law is implemented and what it means, but it doesn't get to say that a constitutional amendment is not constitutional.

    If a hypothetical super majority passed an amendment legalizing slavery, disinfranchising blacks (or whites), or voiding the second amendment, such an action would still be subject to review by SCOTUS.
    Yes, SCOTUS gets to review laws, including amendments, to determine meaning etc, but it makes no sense to say they get to decide if parts of the constitution are constitutional or not.

    Any thing in the Constitution is going to be constitutional, unless it was put in there unconstitutionally. So long as it went through the legal method to be ratified, it is constitutional.
    "Amendment" means a change to a document or making something "better".
