Constitutional Interpretation: Scalia vs. Breyer
"...decisions without a frame of reference to what the Founders intended would lead to “the end of democracy”. Once we abandon their intentions and substitute our own, Scalia said, “we are at sea.” Some on the court, Scalia continued, insert their own feelings and beliefs and values into the decision-making process, in order to create a “happier” society...
“We’re not here to make a happier society. We’re here to determine what the people were thinking when the 14th Amendment was ratified.”
I have said it before. If you want to see into the hearts and minds of the founders, you have to look no further than that of Justice Scalia. Now I will add this... If you want to see the destruction of America, look no further than that of Justice Breyer.
