Nope, didn't miss that at all, just pointing out that a method to change the Constitution was built into the Constitution, and to change the Constitution takes the agreement of a majority of the people who represent the electorate.<quoted text>
Well, here's a little more "original intent" encapsulated in the Bill of Rights - limitations on the power of the federal government in order to protect the rights of the individual first and the states second. And one of the basics that you are missing is that it is not the majority that needs the protections the Constitution protects - it is the minority. That is why the Left is so intent on "fundamentally transforming" this country and deep sixing the Constitution.
Well, there's been quite a few fundamental transformation throughout the country's history and I would venture a guess that liberals were at the fore front of most of them while conservatives were trying to maintain the status quo. In fact, I would venture a guess that those who want to maintain the status quo have always been prone to the hyperbole of declaring any change to be catastrophic.
