No. Judges can/have/will (until slapped down by Congress...like THAT will happen) just keep creating rights out of whole cloth, decreeing based upon em upon ‘penumbras’ and ‘precedent’.
I can’t recall hearing about any case judged plainly upon the Constitution and the writing of the time. Hell, most don’t even use case law before the early 1900’s Socialist take-over.
