So if we consider the verbage in their full context of the discussions the debates which shaped the Constitution as just the vernacular of the day, how could the result of such debates (the Constitution) be considred valid or credible at all. Today they would be just another sound bite.
That is why we have a court system, to interpret what was written. Some is very clear, some is very fuzzy.
Just look at the Preamble, which has the phrase "promote the General Welfare
," and again in Section 8, Powers of Congress: "...provide for the common Defence and general Welfare
of the United States;..."
Just in those two instances they didn't even capitalize it the same with general
having different accented connotation. Then there are the myriad of explanations and interpretations of "general welfare", everything from "happiness" to "needs of society".
