Any argument to the contrary is clearly ridiculous.
The traditional "living document" theory is bunk and would require us not to read the rules, in order for it to be true.
I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.
I am sure (and as your beloved constitution implies) that our founding fathers (whom you hold so dear) would have scolded you for thinking that things should not be bettered.
I might also mention that our founding fathers were a little arrogant and selfish in that they were a select group of people who had money, slaves, land, and so on. They drafted the constitution in a manner that would protect their interests, i.e. at least their immediate future all the way to their great grand kids and beyond. I don't think they knew that the mechanisms they included for change (which they purposely made so that it would be nearly impossible to make any significant changes) would last as long as they did and prove to be as big a problem as it has.
These guys saw things only from the perspective of "what can we make so that our country will stay financially strong for many many years .... as they were rich themselves, they rally had no concept or interest in including mechanisms for upward class movement .. if anything they may have thought the idea of upward class movement was a "neat" concept .. however, they really had no idea how it could actually happen in a manner that was reflective of equal opportunity. Our founding fathers knew what they didn't want, but were not able to fully dream of what could be.
