Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Even giving the commas a miss, the major obfuscation (for today, and to a fair extent even at the time of the framing of the Constitution), lies in the word "people".

Voters, and members of the militia, were white adult land-owning males. Or white, adult, land-owning males.

Things are going to slide, slide in all directions
Won't be nothing
Nothing you can measure anymore
