Interpreting the Constitution

Fred Thompson had this to say about the Constitution, and if my back weren't still messed up I'd have jumped and given an loud and thunderous "Amen!"

I do not believe the Constitution is a living, breathing document. I am committed to appointing strict constructionist judges to the bench if I am elected President, strict constructionists who believe the Constitution has a fixed meaning that can be applied to cases that come before the courts today. They do NOT believe the Constitution is a “living, breathing document,” whose meaning, constantly changing with the sifting sands of our culture, can be determined and applied by unelected judges.

I'll jump up and shout "Amen!" for you Darren. No wonder the media keep trying to convince us he'll lose, they could no longer get away with treasonous behavior.

You get another "Amen" from me. Thompson is looking better every day.
