I mean, since it IS over 100 years old.
According to one of the premier voices of the left, Ezra Klein, it is for just that reason.
I don't think that it is hard to understand. I think the big thing is one's own interpretation of it. While someone may read it and think it means one thing, someone else may read it and think something else.

well technically it's over 200 years old lol. i guess it is kind of vague on some topics and other things have changed over time (hence the amendments). i don't think it's hard to understand (as in read), but it may be hard to use sometimes. like jeremysmom said, everyone interprets it differently.

And, no, it's not open to interpretation. It's not a piece of literature full of symbolism, metaphors, and analogies. It is a very straight-forward plainly-written document that outlines clearly how our country should be run.
I guess we don't need the Supreme Court then to decide what is and what is not constitutional if it is so straight-forward.

Sorry, but NOTHING Ezra Klein has to say carries any merit now that he's been busted as a key player in the "Journo-List" scandal!!
