Citizen Tom hits one out of the park! I know I’m a little late to the party, but his article is a must read.
As a lawyer I can vouch for the fact that most lawyers have bought into the doctrine that the Constitution is a living, breathing document, and that we can’t fathom what the “original intent” of the Founding Fathers’ was so it is useless to try.
This country long ago was hijacked by those who view the Constitution as meaning whatever the Court says it means. We are in a battle where the strongest side wins. Having foregone the traditional restraint of deferring to the legislature on areas that are outside of the realm of the Constitution, our Supreme Court has become the most powerful institution in government. Whichever side has the most unelected ex-lawyers on their hands wins, period. It no longer matters what the Constitution says, it matters who has the most votes when interpreting it.
Ideas have consequences. Liberal ideas have terrible consequences.
