Good article but writer captured by erroneous logic of the Progressives- that the Constitution should be “living”, changeable to fit the mores and opinions of the day which would make it of no value. at all.
The Constitution is suppose to be a solid foundation protecting our liberties from the State, changeable only after great debate and national agreement. To have a flowing meaning is to give us the results such as the Dred Scott decision and the two most recent ones, involving the Affordable Healthcare Act and Gay Marriage.
By making the SCOTUS decisions open to emotional interpretation is to remove all value from legal precedent and jurisprudence, undermining the existing need for the Supreme Court if it is to only confirm legislation or create laws as it sees fit. This, as a whole undermines the concept of Separation of Powers and so leaves the entire American populace open to rule by tyranny of an all-knowing federal government, without constraint of law.
