Our nation has not always lived up to its ideals, yet those ideals have never ceased to guide us. They expose our flaws, and lead us to mend them. We are the beneficiaries of the work of the generations before us and it is each generation's responsibility to continue that work. - Laura Bush
I don't know why you specify the 19th Century. An originalist interpretation of any provision in the Constitution looks to what the text was generally assumed to mean at the time it became law. That could be as early as 1789 or as recent as the 27th Amendment in 1992.Instead it's their reversion to the state of affairs of some point in the 19th Century that is the only true and accurate form of Constitutional interpretation.
That sounds a lot like a term Marx might have used--sort of like "bourgeoisie" or "class struggle."Their basic reactionary nature
Yeah--that's why all that constatutional stuff on the bar exam was so confusing for me. If only I'd had your knowledge of those things!conceal's their lack of knowledge of the Constitution, the Amendments, and their interpretations.
You must be thinking of the millions of statist dim bulbs who are now taking up space in the U.S., who share their president's contempt for the Constitution and for this country. As a conservative, I understand very well that the Constitution is the foundation of all our personal liberties.The Constitution doesn't really mean that much to them.
That's at least good for a laugh. The very reason statists try to persuade judges to rewrite the Constitution to authorize their utopian social schemes is that they know full well they could never authorize them in the only legitimate way, which is by constitutional amendment.If we passed an amendment guaranteeing SSM tomorrow they'd be the first one's advocating a new secession. They are troglodytes who use Constitutional fidelity as a smoke screen.

Don't bother, there is already enough whining. Instead set aside your prejudices and use some objectivity.Let me get out my violin.
Yes, equally applied to all. Can you come up with something relevant?Everyone in this country is deprived of some freedom by his state's laws every day, without those laws violating anything in the Constitution.
No the contrary. I believe that there is the word of God and then immediately following is that of Justice Scalia.The phrase is Justice Scalia's, from Lawrence v. Texas, and it is an accurate description. The fact you would slander him as an "ignorant bigot" shows just how weak your game is.
Yet here you are advocating against the very thing.As a conservative, I understand very well that the Constitution is the foundation of all our personal liberties.
Right, because the freedom of some and their pursuit of happiness should be subject to mob rule. Thank God that there are still some people who do understand the real meaning of the Constitution.That's at least good for a laugh. The very reason statists try to persuade judges to rewrite the Constitution to authorize their utopian social schemes is that they know full well they could never authorize them in the only legitimate way, which is by constitutional amendment.
