Actually, the first Constitution and the Bill of Rights was first drafted by people in the 13 colonies. When the rich, white, propertied, slave holding “Founding Fathers” met in Philadelphia to tweak and tighten up what the people had democratically voted on, they promptly locked the doors, drew the curtains, and posted armed guards to do their handiwork in secret. These white rulers threw out the Constitution and Bill of Rights the people had written. They then proceeded to write a document that protected their property, wealth, and positions of political power; no bill of rights included.
When finished, their Constitution was submitted to the 13 colonies for ratification with no changes to be made by the people. But the people of the colonies knew what they were dealing with at the same time that they REALLY needed a Constitution to move forward as a united country. The one thing they insisted on for ratification was the inclusion of the Bill of Rights. The wealthy founders didn’t like that at all, but had no choice. Basically the Bill of Rights was tacked on to the Constitution as an afterthought and compromise.
And here we are today; with the Bill of Rights gutted - corporations are people don’t ya know, and money is free speech thanks to the Supreme Court which should not even exist.
Though dangerous, the people need to again call a Constitutional Convention of all the States and agree to a way to organize a federal government and courts that meets the needs of the people. planet, and the States to live in peace and harmony.
