Let me be clearer in my opinion. People have rights. They are born with them. In a democracy the people choose to relinquish some of them to the central or Federal Government. In our form of government all the remaining rights are left to the people. I am not discussing the States right now.

I believe the more correct term would be that the Constitution is malleable, it can be changed but they purposely made it difficult. If they wanted it to be changes on a whim why would they have made the amendment process so difficult?

When something can not be changed e.g., torah text, or can be changed only with the greatest of difficulty-- our constitution, the inevitable result is reinterpretation. To that extent both bible and constitution are malleable. They must be. Otherwise they would become irrelevant.

They made the Constitution malleable but they left us a hammer in the form of the amendment process in which to change it. It was meant to be difficult.
