The Left's Invisible Constitution

by Brett Joshpe - November 12th, 2008 - The American Spectator

In terms of how the "Invisible Constitution" might impact the new presidential administration, Barack Obama recently said "I want judges who have a heart, have an empathy for the teenage mom, the minority, the gay, the disabled. We want them to show empathy. We want them to show compassion." However, a true nation of laws requires that judges do their best to interpret laws as they are written, or, at the very least, to remain as restrained as possible in deviating from the text, not to inject their own personal view of what is just or compassionate.

That is what is truly frightening about the liberal interpretation of "Constitutional rights". They are totally the subject to "the rule of judges" and "the rule of law" vanishes from our land.
