  •  which is why, i think anyone (2+ / 0-)

    arguing for an original understanding of the constitution is really demanding for a return to some sort of prelapsarian society, or at least a return to the prevailing power structures of that era.  it can't just be that the framers were locking in their politics, it's also an argument that they were right to do so.  otherwise, the text remains neutral on these points, being written by persons well in the art of highfalutin' legal gibberish.

    While white males would definitely rule the roost, I really doubt Rick Perry would enjoy living in "the age of reason."
