    Freedom from liberal government seems to be the cause of his life and certainly was the cause of our Founders.

    Scalia says, if the Constitution said, this document may be interpreted anyway succeeding generations want it never would have been ratified in a million years.

    This means if there had been liberals at the time the Constitution was written there would have been no America.

    So why are liberals legal today when they are so anti-American??

    The Founding Fathers were liberals in the true sense of the word. Even JFK's liberalism seems conservative today. The democrat party and today's liberal establishment is more like classic fascism than anything else.

    Liberalism in part and parcel with progress.

    The founders believed in slavery and that women should not have the right to vote.

    Today's liberals moved beyond that.

    To bad conservatives are "classic".

    JKF: "do not ask what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country."

    JFK:“It is a paradoxical truth that tax rates are too high today, and tax revenues are too low and the soundest way to raise the revenues in the long run is to cut the tax rates…. [A]n economy constrained by high tax rates will never produce enough revenue to balance the budget, just as it will never create enough jobs or enough profits.” —John F. Kennedy, 1963[1]
