Abandoning Defensive Crouch Liberal Constitutionalism

Mark Pulliam , says “”Mark Tushnet holds an endowed chair at Harvard Law School. His left-wing views do not represent all of the legal academy, but there are far more law professors like him than there are “conservatives.” The only unique aspect of his manifesto is its candor. If you want to see what the Supreme Court will look like for several generations (at least) if Hillary Clinton is elected, read this.””

Not a long read folks and well worth it. Even I was able to comprehend most of what it said and I only read it twice.

    “”Liberals oppose limits on the growth of government spending by looking at only one side of the equation–the recipient–calling spending limits “arbitrary limits on the state’s capacity to meet human needs” and similar euphemisms. All the money spent by government is TAKEN through the threat of force from hardworking taxpayers. Limiting the amount of money the government can spend is an essential protection of taxpayers. There is no “right” to receive government payments or benefits. All money, in the first instance, belongs to the people who earned it. The “needs” of some do not outweigh the freedom of others. Progressives disagree with this and would take as much as they feel is necessary to “fix” society. The Great Society has spent trillions of dollars and made things worse.””
    I agree.

    Spending formulas are easy parts; moral calculus is budget challenge

    “”I sometimes wonder what “conservative Republicans” are thinking when they say that they cannot vote for Donald Trump because their morals and values will not allow them. No argument there at all from me.
    The question I have is, how do you react to people who do not care about your morals and values…and who instead want to impose their morals and values on you? Would you just allow them to that to you and your families?
    BTW…I get a kick out of people who try to insinuate that I don’t have morals and values, because I now support Donald Trump. There is nothing I can do about those frightened by Trump, all I know is that my morals and values compel me to fight my enemies, and not run from them.
    “Let me make it as a simple as I can. Hillary Clinton. Donald Trump. Supreme Court appointment.”…RICK PERRY
    “This isn’t about just the next four years,” he said, “as a matter of fact, it’s not about the next eight years, if we were to have a candidate that won successive terms. This is about the next 40 or 50 years because of those Supreme Court appointments. Listen, Hillary Clinton, we know exactly what she’s going to appoint, she’s going to appoint an individual, a raging liberal, an individual that keeps the left happy.”””
    I agree
