Amendments are Part of the Constituition

Any amendment to the Constituition becomes part of the Constituition. It can override anything previously written in the Constituition. It is the way the framers created so that we could alter the form of government they set up. The amendment process is difficult so that it doesn't get changed in the heat of passion over some issue. Unfortunately, the American people have been conned into altering the Constituition several times.
