Constitutional Amendments

 “I confess that there are several parts of this constitution which I do not at present approve, but I am not sure I shall never approve them: For having lived long, I have experienced many instances of being obliged by better information, or fuller consideration, to change opinions even on important subjects, which I once thought right, but found to be otherwise.”   -Benjamin Franklin,  in Madison, Notes on the Debates in the Federal Convention, September 17, 1787
