    More reason for a new constitution - something is awry if so many people "do not understand it."

    It is very difficult reading - most people are not going to bother trying to understand language that was composed for a different era of literacy.

    The first person who generates an organizational plan for the Fourth Continental Congress (civil political discussion between adults), will win the discussion between adults.
    That last? Nice backpedalling.

    The founders only had one simple formula for organizing government, and a relatively limited supply of paper, ink, endurance; and basically, parameters of simple designs that would engage the few literate citizens of 1787. We need to have a constitutional convention that gathers the diversity of people and technology that the founders could not gather.
