The statistics reject the nation’s founding principles. They teach that the Constitution should not be interpreted as the framers had intended, limiting the authority of the federal government through negative rights, that is the right not to be abused and coerced by the government. Instead they urge that the Constitution be interpreted as compelling the government to enforce “positive rights,” that is economic and social justice or “the second Bill of Rights.”
They want to transform civil society through the judiciary, without the consent of the people and without regard to the Constitution. That’s why the next election is so important.
Do you want the type of government the framers intended, or a statistic-type government? It’s important to vote in this next election.
