Will Justice Scalia Bring The Whole Constitution To The Tea Party?

Comments Off

It was interesting to see that Rep. Michele Bachmann is setting up a constitutional law class for the congressional Tea Party members. One of the invited guests is Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia. I have seen a couple of writers who question if there is a conflict, but I think this could be a good thing.

If they look at the whole constitution.

I love to hear from some of the "Protectors of the Constitution" who absolutely don’t seem to read the whole thing. In particular, I am interested in why they don’t seem to talk much about the 7th amendment, the one that gives a right to civil jury trials.

It also might be interesting to see if they get into what Citizen United really means. I have been wondering for awhile, if a corporation has rights, why can’t we put bad ones in jail? Are the usual constitutional responsibilities also required for them to exercise their rights?

This class could really be a good thing.
