a constitutional question

Our Constitution is touted as a sacred document that must not be questioned--by those who profit from its current form.

Likewise, those who say anything not explicitly stated by the Constitution is un-constitutional are those who profit (ideologically or financially) from having this be the case. Not because they really think its current formulation is, literally and divnely, perfect.

Consider this: not one word of the Constitution says anything about political parties or corporations--neither of which existed when it was written.

Does this mean both should be banned? Or allowed to exist completely outside our Constitution's framework?

More reasonably, one would think we could use an amendment that explicitly accounts for and regulates the two forces that utterly dominate American politics today.
