    Wingnuts show their love for the Constitution as it was originally written by constantly offering amendments to it.

    Right Sangha. Republicans are the only people that have ever ammended the constitution (not that they could if they wanted to......minor oversight in your quick attempt to get a jab in).

    I don't see any dems claiming to be Originalists or Strict Constructionists, or claiming that the Constitution has been "corrupted"

    that's because dems don't pick and choose the parts of the constitution they like.

    the rightwingnuts never met an individual liberty they didn't try to abridge....

    except for gun ownership, of course.

    The amendment process was written in to the original document, fool.

    It's the judiciary making law and "interpretations" up out of whole cloth that wasn't.

    That's because you only hear what you've tuned your Fabian socialist ears to hear.

    Constructionists also abhor the corruption of original intent that are the 14th, 16th and 17th Amendments.

    That might have something to do with the fact that a Non-Originalist interpretation of the Constitution is one of the basics of American liberalism. Among those who read it, anyway. Cluelessness about the COTUS isn't confined to one side of the spectrum. ;)

    You are correct.
    The Dems just throw the whole thing out, no picking and choosing for them.
