"The consciousness of good intentions disdains ambiguity. I shall not, however, multiply professions on this head. My motives must remain in the depository of my own breast. My arguments will be open to all, and may be judged of by all. They shall at least be offered in a spirit which will not disgrace the cause of truth."
-'Publius' The Federalist No. 1
To think, this gentleman could have been in the position that Kennedy now sits.......with the opinions that Kennedy has concocted just in the last few years, what would the landscape of America look like with Bork standing in his place? Bork's work Slouching Towards Gommorah is an excellent tome, and this man's wisdom emanates with each page. With Bork and Scalia sitting to anchor the nine, the qualms and brewing storm facing our judiciary would probably not have reached this crescendo.
"Once the justices depart, as most of them have, from the original understanding of the principles of the Constitution, they lack any guidance other than their own attempts at moral philosophy, a task for which they have not even minimal skills. Yet when it rules in the name of the Constitution, whether it rules truly or not, the court is the most powerful branch of government in domestic policy. The combination of absolute power, disdain for the historic Constitution, and philosophical incompetence is lethal."
I just wish that I could have read this in my Constitutional Law class.
