    What process did the lawmakers believe should be followed to interpret the Constitution?

    What rule or principle should be applied to determine how the words in the Constitution should be generally understood?

    The judicial branch has that authority, sadly, too many judges do not take their oath seriously, just as most politicians do not. They are all more concerned with ideology, just look at the 9th circuit for any proof you need, this system has a cancer, and it is spreading.

    I'm calling modern politicians scum. They willfully misrepresent the "interpretation" process of the constitution and we the citizenry are compliant, which is not good. Instead of amending the constitution(which was made intentionally difficult) our idiots, sorry, politicians pass resolutions and policies that directly conflict with states' rights, which are addressed by the ninth and tenth amendments.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    I think that goes back to what a politician is supposed to do. One of the reasons Palin is looks so nice to so many people, is because she isn't a politician. For this reason, I'm rather sure she won't get President. She will have to become a politician to run for it, and will therefore lose her supporter base.

    But getting back to the main topic, politicians are supposed to be coniving, slimy greaseballs. If they weren't, then they wouldn't be politicians.

    The document itself, not that difficult of a concept. The ONLY way the federal has power over the states under the last two Bill of Rights amendments is explicitly stated, a strong majority of the house/senate must pass the amendment with a strong majority of the states voting positive. Anything short of that IS unconstitutional.

    For the record, I agree with both of you, and this is a truly sad thing is it not? We need to start holding politicians responsible for these things, at least to the point of making sure that this kind of "representative" is sent on to different work.

    That's why I like Sen. Richard Burr from NC. If i still lived in NC, he'd have my vote again next election.
