The constitution has been formally amended 17 times. The first 10 amendments are the bill of rights, which were included in the constitution to begin with. The constitution has worked just as the founders wanted it to work. Government is supposed to operate slowly, and thousands of amendments have been preposed that have failed. The only changes to thus far have been incredibly good changes such as the end of slavery and making it illegal for government to vote on raising their salaries unfairly, and prohibiting BS laws.

On a side note, all you idiots hating on America in the comments need to settle down. If you don't like America, get out and stay out. If you think America is all ****** up, look no further than your own past. All the Euro fags mouthing off have no ground to stand on.
1. Two world wars and 5% of the World's population dead.
2. Your healthcare isn't free. It comes in the form of ungodly tax rates which can hit 50%. If you don't have healthcare in America it doesn't mean we leave you on the streets to die. It means your dental/pediatrician visits aren't covered. All emergency care is free in America if you have nothing. Also America only pays 14% in taxes.
3. America is not the fattest/dumbest country on Earth. That's a ridiculous stereotype. America has the best universities in the world.
4. Comparing a continent to a country is retarded.
5. Shut the **** up and stop bitching. This is funnyjunk, not BBC/CNN/Foxnews. Shut the **** up and make with the funny.

Lets not forget that these are the guys who said all men are equal and then kept slavery.
#31 to #29 - ftsfts ONLINE (02/24/2012) [-]
most of them themselves did not care for or against slavery, it was mostly in kept to appease the southern states.

Do you really think the way the US government was set up by the Founders would still work today if it weren't changed at all? The US isn't the same as it was 200 or so years ago...

Strict Construction of the Constitution is NO WAY to run a government. According to the Constitution, the federal government ONLY has the delegated powers, the rest are left up to the states. Without an elastic clause, we'd be SO ****** . Federal consolidation of power was necessary in order to protect African-Americans from slavery, segregation, and Jim Crow laws, for example; which wouldn't be feasible in a state's-rights model of government. That's just one example; the point is that the government needs to adapt with the times.

The founding fathers KNEW that the constitution wasn't perfect. That's why they made a way to change it. They knew it wouldn't be the perfect government, but they made it so we could shape it to get close to it.

the fact that incidences like that have even happened is proof enough that it's a flawed system

Because the world is a completely different place from 200 years ago. Some laws are no longer necessary, and some new ones are. Obviously freedom of speech/religion/etc should all remain, but the constitution was designed to change with the times.

In the original constitution, Black people were considered 3/5 of a person.

Yep, the constitution is always right.

The original constitution was majorly flawed. And amendments and other legislation are too subject to corrupt corporate lobbyists.

A Resource Based Economy is a much better model.
