I am convinced to level the playing filed for the little guy, the under represented, the poverty stricken, the abused, and the many more subsections of the population that could benefit substationally and rightfully from undue oppression, the vise the constitution has on our society must be reexamined.

Your points are all well defined and articulate. When you ask if I can suggest a means to make changes, I will readily admit that to be beyond my skill set. In keeping with my original concern, however, I simply posit the concern that the constitution is already abused regularly and there are those who are positioned well enough to manipulate it for their own benefit. What happens at that point is that the powerful get stronger and the weak become more so. Personally, I believe this is one of the most advantageous weapons TPTB have against the little guy because there is little to nothing that can be done about it once the determination has been made that the constitution supports any particular viewpoint or action.
Does this not mean we are guaranteed to lose before we come to the starting line?
I promise I am perfectly OK with being proven wrong. I am actually hoping I have over-thought something or seen a goblin that isn't really there.
