I have often argued that we don't have a true two-party system in America.
We have one party -- the big government party. It has a Republican wing that likes war, deficits and corporate welfare and a Democratic wing that likes war, taxes and individual welfare. Neither wing abides by the Constitution, and both write laws that doom third parties to failure, and ensure they stay in power.
My late friend Justice Antonin Scalia often argued against the procedure of judges looking to what members of Congress said about legislation in order to help the judges to interpret it. "Who cares what they say?" he would bellow. "The only reason they say anything is to get re-elected.”
Is it feasible to have fidelity to the Constitution in present-day America?
Wouldn't the country be better off with less government?
