I had an interesting thought. After these lectures it seems to me that very little, if any, of the original intent and meaning is left to the Constitution of 1787 and Bill of Rights. Am I correct in thinking that every part of it has been rejected at one time or another? If so, when was it… What year did it die?
My book THE POLITICALLY INCORRECT GUIDE TO THE CONSTITUTION describes American constitution history from the onset of the Revolution through the drafting of the Constitution, its ratification on the basis of a specific set of assurances about its meaning, and its gradual and ongoing transformation since. Take a look at that.
