    We can’t have any more Justices like this appointed which is another reason we have to get rid of Obama

    True liberty of the people (and protection of the same in favour of the people), is an old outdated concept for a sitting Justice in favour of Socialism? Really?

    I would rather hear an evaluate an honest opinion than hear anymore demagoguery.

    A fair evaluation of the remarks of the Justice would have included copies of the Constitutions of South Africa and Canada, and the comment from the T censored for stupidity.

    It's actually pretty wise advice from an international standpoint, looking at a twentieth century constitutional drafting process that was successful would be more helpful than an 18th century writing that verges on ancient history. She was talking about the process of drafting a constitution, not some other constitution being better.

    I haven't studied South Africa's constitution but I do have to say I agree 100% with:

    Let me say first that a constitution, as important as it is, will mean nothing unless the people are yearning for liberty and freedom. If the people don’t care, then the best constitution in the world won’t make any difference. So the spirit of liberty has to be in the population, and then the constitution – first, it should safeguard basic fundamental human rights, like our First Amendment, the right to speak freely, and to publish freely, without the government as a censor.

    Man has only those rights which he can defend from government and himself. We were given the constitution as a tool to defend ourselves from government but only I can defend me from myself.

    Self-destruction is a risk freedom allows you.

    Maybe you look for a better Constitution and Canada doesn't actually have a Constitution they have "CANADIAN CHARTER OF RIGHTS AND FREEDOMS" Which are rights granted to individuals by the government Canadian and British, totally the opposite of our constitution

    Sadly, Whiny C still labors under the misconception that his opinion is relevant.

    His opinion ceased being relevant over a year ago with me. I don't have him on ignore but ignore his tripe for the most part.
