The original Constitution (the bill of rights) and the first 10 amendments are only 2 folio pages -— the subsequent amendments add the additional pages.

But that's the problem... it is just not long enough. A proper Constitution we could all understand should be at least 2000 pages with plenty of “Whereas”es and “At the Secretary’s Discretion” clauses to fully clarify matters.

The recently passed Health Care Bill is a good example of the format a truly modern, understandable Constitution should take, dontcha think Mr. Klein?

You, sir, are absolutely correct. The US Constitution is amazing in its simplicity and brevity. It was written so that it could be easily understood by everyone. Except, it seems, liberals.
