Our guaranteed freedom

The premise of the U.S. Constitution is individual freedom.

It defines what powers the government has over the people. Laws passed/executive orders must meet the defined powers. That is what the Supreme Court decides.

The Constitution has a mechanism for change. It’s called amendments. It is purposely hard to amend, but has been amended many times. Using amendments, not interpretation, is how we keep the Constitution strong and current.
