I've been a fan of his for a long time. He's someone who really knows the Constitution and I would even consider him as someone who would make a great addition to the Supreme Court. I can't support him for President though. But I'm glad he's running. He was on Hannity and Colmes tonight (pilfered from Ian Schwartz):
And this is my favorite article from him, evah, that I still reread every once in awhile. It is called : On the establishment of religion: What the Constitution Really Says. From Worldnetdaily:
The First Amendment to the Constitution plainly states: "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion ..." Since there can be no federal law on the subject, there appears to be no lawful basis for any element of the – including the courts – to act in this area.The article is long, but is an eloquent, powerful, piece that explains why the federal government has no authority to make a law, or listen to a court case in which religion is the subject matter and why states rights are so important to the foundation of this republic. I would just recommend reading the whole thing.
Moreover, the 10th Amendment to the Constitution plainly states that "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 means that the power to make laws respecting an establishment of religion, having been explicitly withheld from the United States, is reserved to the states or to the people.Taken together, therefore, the First and 10th Amendments reserve the power to address issues of religious establishment to the different states and their people.
