The Originalists

February 14th, 2016

If men were angels, no government would be necessary. Antonin Scalia, as always, needs no government.

I like to think that somewhere, Antonin Scalia is having a grand ‘ole time¬†with James Madison and the Constitutional¬†Convention of 1787, the members of the conventions that ratified the first Ten Amendments, plus the Radical Republicans from 1868 who ratified the 14th Amendment. For once, I think he would indulge in post-enactment legislative history.

Rest in peace Justice Scalia. Your memory will live on for generations through your opinions.
