Chuck Schumer took to the floor today during the cloture debate to spout one lie after another. One in particular caught my ear, because it explains everything about how we got where we are.
This is his most important comment: “He[Kavanaugh]’s deeply skeptical of unenumerated rights….”
Compare and contrast with the tenth amendment: “The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the states, are reserved to the states respectively, or to the people.”
This tells us why we’re where we are, doesn’t it? Liberals believe the tenth amendment does not exist, and it’s up to courts and unelected bureaucrats to decide every unenumerated right: abortion, same sex marriage, EPA decisions that bankrupt companies, etc. Liberals feel threatened that for the first time in many decades it’s possible that the Court will actually have a conservative majority, i.e. one that believes the tenth amendment exists – and that it means what it says.
Thanks Chuck for finally saying something worthwhile.
