I’m a fan of the US Constitution as a growing, living document. I’m not much for those that choose a period of time in its evolution and say “This is where the Constution should stop”.

It’s a document subject to interpretation as the needs of the people shift and change. The US is a nation of laws first and foremost and they provide the boundaries for liberty.. Those boundaries and do shift and move. Judges, lower levels of legislation, community mores, all of these things work with this living document to create livable communities where freedoms are protected and liberties are afforded expression.
