The ‘Living’ Constitution

I had a commentary in The Roanoke Times yesterday on how the ‘living’ Constitution is draining the life right out of us. The headline writer gave it the title, “CPR on the ‘living’ Constitution.” A better title would have been “DNR on the ‘living’ Constitution” since the concept of the living Constitution needs to die a natural death.

For those of you who would like to understand the real¬†Constitution better, read the announcement at Public Discourse about the new Natural Law, Natural Rights, and American Constitutionalism¬†project of the Witherspoon Institute and then check out the NLNRAC website. This will be a great resource for students, teachers, and — as the announcement puts it — the “educated” public.
