Recently supreme court justice Ginsburg said the following, “I would not look to the U.S. Constitution, if I were drafting a Constitution in the year 2012."
So should the United states write a new constitution, or should this pathetic looser get a pink slip.
I can't answer your last question, but it seems that the US Constitution is very basic ( especially since it is supposd to give decision-making on lesser matters to the states).
The constitution writers were diverse in their personal opinions, therefore the document only addresses basic values. It is difficult to get a large group to agree on anything, but when it came to things listed in the Preamble, most everyone is on board with broad basic principles such as preserving justice, insuring domestic peace, providing defense, promoting general welfare, and securing liberty for ourselves and our descendants.
Whatever follows is supposed to be a guide to whatever decisions are made in law-- it does not try to cover every piece of law for every state or district or individual, as long as it complies with general principles.
