Activist Judges and Limbaugh

That's David Limbaugh, in a post in Town Hall. Some highlights:

What [Senator Barbara] Boxer and company really mean by "fundamental rights" is rights that have been written into the Constitution by activist judges precisely because they weren't fundamental enough to have been included in the original Constitution or its amendments or uniformly passed into law by federal or state legislative bodies. They mean rights whose continued existence depends upon Supreme Court justices affirming erroneous precedent established by their activist predecessors.

Yes, those activist judges, with their decades of legal experience, research and education, insisting that the country move forward, not living by a document 200 years old, written by people who were smart enough to realize that a nation and it's country would need to evolve, grow, change. Limbaugh is no doubt only concerned with a few decisions via these activist judges, most notably dealing with abortion and sodomy laws.

I just wish that one time one of these sanctimonious senators started lecturing a nominee about a woman's fundamental "right to choose," another senator or the nominee would have the courage to throw back in his face the sanctity of the Constitution. I wish that one time a ranting senator began railing about the potential loss of "fundamental rights" someone would point out that the extraconstitutional method for creating mythical fundamental rights places in jeopardy our entire constitutional scheme of rights and liberties.


So, the right to choose is in direct violation of the sanctity of the Constitution. After 200 years, a civil war and numerous cultural wars, the Constitution is in peril because women now have the right to choose. And, the extraconsitutional method for creating mythical fundamental rights places in jeopardy our entire constitutional scheme of rights and liberties sentence? Really, one shouldn't be allowed to do that to the english language. Besides, it's a talking point. Women have been given more rights, and that is somehow a threat to the scheme of rights and liberties? Whereas, taking away rights of American citizens (based on Christian principles no doubt) is liberating?
