  •  Scalia (none)
    I haven't read all the Scalia opinions but I think one thing here might be his love of laws period.  This is, I suspect, why he was opposed to getting involved in the feeding tube thing.  His philosophy is that if you don't like the law, change it, but don't try to make it something that it isn't.  Now this doesn't negate the fact that he is a hack....I truly believe he is that and more.  But his judicial philosophy is basically that the law, as written, is what you go by.
    •  One more point (none)
      I think that Scalia wouldn't have a problem if you went to the federal level and changed the classification of pot or if you just changed the federal law......he would say good ridance.  That's my understanding of a positivist, which he is.
