To use the contitution to tell people that they cannot do something is surefire way to open up a huge can of worms.

True...but they have been doing it without the fig leaf of a Constitutional amendment anyway.

Big difference. What you're talking about, I'm guessing, are regular laws/policies/regulations, etc. These can be changed or discarded with relative ease. To put something in the constitution is almost like putting in stone - meaning that once it's in there it's not so easy to erase it. Of course, all of this would mean a whole lot more if our leaders actually followed the constitution...
