Activism v. Originalism

Although this is an editorial, it makes for a snappy faux debate between Justice Ruth “Snoozer” Ginsburg and Chief Justice John “Dapper John” Roberts.

If you read nothing else, read this paragraph:

Ginsburg also offered the best definition of judicial activism we’ve ever heard when she said: “U.S. jurists honor the Framers’ intent ‘to create a more perfect union,’ I believe, if they read the Constitution as belonging to a globalist 21st century, not as fixed forever by 18th century understandings.”

Perhaps the lady was sleeping when they covered the amendment process in her law school.

The National Center for Public Policy Research is a communications and research foundation supportive of a strong national defense and dedicated to providing free market solutions to today’s public policy problems. We believe that the principles of a free market, individual liberty and personal responsibility provide the greatest hope for meeting the challenges facing America in the 21st century.
