Constitution 01

We hear a lot of talk the Constitution needs to be a “living” document. It needs to be interpreted for a modern world. Perhaps, even you believe this is the case. However, before you want the courts to interpret the constitution by today’s standards. Rather than using a constructionist view of the constitution where it means only what it says. Stop and think what you are really advocating.

What you are promoting is that current politicians can define the right guaranteed by the Constitution. Because if the constitution “lives” then it changes to fit current morals. Every right granted in the constitution is subject to interpretation. You have no rights except those granted by current administrations.

Do you really want the current politicians of the day determining your rights?
