Constitutional Interpretation

Friday, August 22nd, 2003

Tony Adragna argues, rightly so, that it is each of our duties to decide whether or not a government action is constitutional. QUOTE:

It’s our job, too, to understand the constitution — how else are we to hold the political branches, and the judiciary through them, accountable on their oath to “defend the Constitution”? How else are we to decide that a certain prevailing constitutional understanding not already found wanting by the courts is something that merits a challenge? Notwithstanding that a certain constitutional understanding may be constitutionally permissible, how else are we to conclude that some other understanding may be the better choice? It’s not simply the three branches that have an interest in how the Constitution is interpreted & applied, so it oughtn’t be just them deciding what the Constitution means.
