Justice Scalia on the Constitution

Speaking at the University of Central Missouri this week, Justice Antonin Scalia spoke out against what he believes to be an increasingly popular trend of treating the Constitution like a “living” document. Scalia stressed that judges should search for orginial intent in the Constitution and curb their appetites for policy-making. The Associated Press quoted Scalia, who quipped:

“The people and their representatives in Congress have realized what the game is, and they want people to rewrite the constitution the way they want it.”

A biography of Scalia written by a university professor prompted the justice’s visit.
