There have been many books written about the "true" meaning of the Constitution and different parts of it. Many of these books have been written by well respected scholars. These two sentences should exist without any argument.
The reason for the word "true" being in parenthesis, is that many of these well respected scholars have taken distinctly different views as to what the "truth" is.
For instance, Justice Scalia, is a self described "origianallist" in viewing the meaning of the Constitution. Someone please show me where in the original document Corporations were given personhood, (not Scalia's doing) and given expanded rights to contribute to political campaigns? Don't do interpreting, I mean find those exact words. I am not presenting this as a one sided argument, I am only pointing out that it is not really as simple as it sounds.
Here is the question of the day, does anyone think that wealthy people should pay a lower percentage of their income to taxes than middle class people? Don't argue tax brackets, just a simple question. Do you think someone earning 46 million dollars should pay a lower percentage of their income than say someone earning sixty thousand?
