Original Views, a novel idea!

It is sad to think we have come so far, or slipped so low, that it is surprising when a Supreme Court justice considers the original intent of the Constitutional framers as not only relevant, but paramount. Is there a way to limit what the Supreme Court can look to for guidance in it’s decision making process? If so, I would support limiting the Court to considering only the Constitution, and possibly contemporary documents of the founders, as relevant when deciding the Constitutionality of a case. Precedent, other countries law, and whim should not be allowed.

Thanks to Real Clear Politics for From Thomas, Original Views by Charles Krauthammer in the Washington Post.
