"Living Rules" for Poker
Many law professors, and others who hold contempt for our Constitution, preach that the Constitution is a living document. Saying that the Constitution is a living document is the same as saying we don't have a Constitution. For rules to mean anything, they must be fixed. How many people would like to play me poker and have the rules be 'living'? Depending on 'evolving standards,' maybe my two pair could beat your flush." --Walter Williams
"When he refused to bow and grovel before the federal judiciary, [Judge Roy] Moore was suspended as Alabama's chief justice. In November 2003, he was tried before a judicial ethics panel. Moore's position was elegant in its simplicity: I took an oath to defend the Alabama Constitution, which acknowledges God as the foundation of our laws. Therefore, as the state's chief judicial officer, I am bound to affirm that truth, which I have done with my Ten Commandments statue. And, by the way, I'm not required to go along with the federal judiciary's convenient misinterpretations of the Constitution. Based on his intransigence here, Moore was removed from office. ...[W]e are in a constitutional crisis created by activist judges intent on mandating homosexual marriage (thereby deconstructing the American family), taking God out of the Pledge of Allegiance, abetting pornographers in flooding the country with filth, enshrining abortion-on-demand as the penultimate right, making Americans subject to foreign laws, and rewriting our history to transform America into one (secular) nation, under their heel. To save the Constitution and representative government will take a thousand Roy Moores, all echoing the words of Thomas Jefferson (author of our nation's founding document) 'To consider the judges as the ultimate arbiters of all constitutional questions (is) a very dangerous doctrine indeed, and one which would place us under the despotism of an oligarchy.' It has." --Don Feder
I thought you might enjoy those two quotes! The first one especially emphasizes what we are facing this week as Judicial nominations are again at the forefront of politics. Yesterday was the 4 year anniversary of the nomination of former Texas Supreme Court Justice Priscilla Owen. Filibustered for four years! It is time that our Republican elected officials brought this situation to an end and forced an up or down vote on her nomination. We need many, many conservative judges appointed to the bench to offset the years of constant movement to the left by the Democrat judges.
