Absolutely not and I think the founding fathers would be horrified to see how much they are worshiped by some people. They were just men, they had some good ideas. They were not perfect, if they were, we wouldn't have needed to amend the Constitution so many times already. There are certainly parts of the Constitution that need to be rewritten to clarify it, or even thrown out entirely and redone. The Constitution is a living document, it's not something to be bowed down to. It's idiotic to pretend otherwise.

Start reading! If you get halfway through that list and don't begin to see crystal clarity inherent in the constitution... well then I suggest you read the whole list. That goes for anyone that is "confused" about Our constitution, it's vision and intent and thinks it's wide open to interpretation. It's not. But to understand it, one must LEARN of the history, philosophy, evolution that preceded the founding fathers, that they were students of, and preceded by centuries the founding of this country, but more importantly, to understand why these documents and theories behind them are the most powerful and important documents in the history of civilization.
Not sure I understand the question.
Doesn't the Constitution provide a method for amending itself? So, doesn't that mean that it was intended to be amended at some point? If it is intended to be amended, does that make amending it part of the original intent?
I may be wrong.
