Given that the constitution is not sentient and cannot speak for itself,
interpretations are all that we can discuss.  I believe the constitution
says what I say that it says above.  I respect that you disagree, but that
doesn't change the fact that I think your position is not supported by the
text of the constitution.

The rest of this message feels to me like just further repetition of
things that you've already said and that I've already said I disagreed
with and explained why, so I don't think repeating that I still disagree
is horribly useful.  I still think the summary I wrote during the vote:


is a reasonably accurate summary of the situation.
