Feinstein Says “Originalism Is Very Troubling”

I see Senator Dianne Feinstein, who has milked the American dream to become extremely rich, says the Constitution is a “living document,” subject to change at a Democratic Socialist’s whim, and the thought of being forced to adhere to the Founders intent is “very disturbing.”

Briefly quoting the Daily Wire report linked above:

(Feinstein said) “Judge Gorsuch has also stated that he believes judges should look to the original public meaning of the Constitution when they decide what a provision of the Constitution means. This is personal, but I find this originalist judicial philosophy to be really troubling. In essence, it means that judges and courts should evaluate our constitutional rights and privileges as they were understood in 1789. However, to do so would so would not only ignore the intent of the Framers, that the Constitution would be a framework on which to build, but it severely limits the genius of what our Constitution upholds.”

In essence, it means a United States Senator, sworn to uphold the Constitution as it was promulgated in Philadelphia just short of 240 years ago; a document that has formed the basis of making more people happy than any other political scheme in history, believes the Constitution should be thrown out with the trash.

It is time for Feinstein to take what is left of her life into retirement.A silent retirement, at that.

    “When I use a word,” Humpty Dumpty said, in rather a scornful tone, “it means just what I choose it to mean—neither more nor less.” “The question is,” said Alice, “whether you can make words mean so many different things.” “The question is,” said Humpty Dumpty, “which is to be master—that’s all.”
