Thanks. And your points are well taken. The Constitution is too difficult to amend. Of course, Constitutions should not be easy to change — but they shouldn’t be so hard to change that they can’t evolve over time.
The Supreme Court is far too powerful. In large part, though, that’s because Congress doesn’t have the power it should have. In a sensibly designed government, a democratically elected federal assembly would have unambiguous authority to make whatever laws were necessary to promote the general welfare. The only limits on that power would be those set by a Bill of Rights.
