Justice Scalia - The Loss Of A True American

On February 13, 2016 U.S. Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia passed away.

A strict constitutional originalist, he was the main defense on the Supreme Court for the American people against those who desire a loose interpretation of the US Constitution, i.e., the "progressive agenda". His loss will be felt by America for years to come.

People today sometimes argue that the Constitution is a "living document"; meaning that it is to be interpreted by the changes mores of the people over time. Scalia was consistent on his thoughts on this. One of his responses was:

“The Constitution is not an organism; it’s a legal text, for Pete’s sake. Unless you give the laws the meaning of those who enacted them, you’re destroying democracy.”

That simple statement of logic seems to escape many. And, a detriment to our Nation that is.

The actual cause of Justice Scalia's passing is unknnown - and may never be known.

May he rest in peace. Justice Scalia, thank you for having "our six".
