    I think it means... that the constitution prevents us from making the wrong decisions?

    The constitution is not there to 100% stop bad choices but prevents them.

    The constitution is very important but it is not a 100% fix. It was created as rules to follow, but as you know people break rules. The constitution keeps a lot of problems from happening but it does not 100% stop it. Just like laws, people still commit crimes but it keeps order.
