FYI, the Constitution, if strictly interpreted as it should have been, never allowed for slavery. What did allow for slavery was corrupt, immoral men defining people as property instead of men and women. Many abolitionists understood this at the time and were arguing just that. Returning to an original intent interpretation of the Constitution does not roll back the clock unless we all agree to define people as property again. THAT WILL NOT HAPPEN, so please people, study your history before you comment negatively on the Constitution again. Our Constitution is a framework designed to insure our individual liberty and most people in the world envy what we have, yet many Americans are so willing to ignore!
