The Irony of Conservative Supreme Court Justices who follow “Constitutionalism”
Conservative justices of the Supreme Court believe in “strict Constitutionalism.”
They do not believe in the exercise of judgment in the interpretation of laws built on precedence. They follow only what the original framers of our Constitution wrote with strict interpretation.
By ignoring judicial precedence these Constitutionalist Justices make far reaching radical decisions in their review of cases before the Supreme Court.
One example is the Citizens United case.
But the very power these Justices exercise “Judicial Review” is itself interpretive and not specifically given in our Constitution.
And therein is the dichotomy.
