In the interest of full disclosure, I love the thought of having a conservative like Gorsuch on the Court.
But that was just for transparency. My real question is, if an originalist interpretation of the Constitution is so absurd, why have a Constitution? If you can reinterpret it at will based on changing circumstances and public opinion, then it’s meaningless. Yes, there are some things the Constitution got wrong. But there’s a process in place for fixing that. Yes, that process is lengthy and cumbersome…but it’s supposed to be.
What I just can’t wrap my head around is how the idea of reinterpreting the Constitution as you see fit at any given point in time doesn’t render it null and void.
