    The brilliance of the document is that it can be altered via the amendment process. But the idea that we should select judges to do an end run around that amendment process to deny things like people's freedom of speech is not cool.

    You can't call the constitution a "brilliant" document because it's fluid and allows for amendments, and call for "originalism" at the same time.

    Sure you can. The president shouldn't be taken to court, because he can be impeached. He shouldn't be impeached, because he can be taken to court.

    Original as amended is perfectly reasonable. Amendments trump what they amended by definition and were permitted in the original documnt.

    I don't like the system and am glad we don't have it, but I can understand its logic.
