"Indeed, the rage of theorists to make constitutions a vehicle for the conveyance of their own crude, and visionary aphorisms of government, requires to be guarded against with the most unceasing vigilance."
     -- Joseph Story
     Commentaries on the Constitution of the United States
     Book III, § 1857.

The only second-guessing allowed on this matter is at the ballot box, wherein there is no special weight given whatever expertise anyone cares to claim.
