So this is “Standing Up for the Little Guy?”

During the confirmation hearing of John Roberts, Sen. Durbin asked Roberts if he would “Stand up for the little guy”. Now, as we all know, it is not up to a judge to “stand up for the little guy”, but rather to stand up for and uphold the Constitution and the Rule of Law.

However, to illustrate the hypocrisy of the left, in Oakland, CA, the city council has voted to evict a small mom-and-pop tire shop in favor of luxury condominiums. This is an egregious corruption of the original intent of the takings clause of the fifth amendment to the Constitution, and a direct result of the mockery of constitutional scholarship Kelo vs. City of New London. It is cases like this which should make our resolve to put Originalist justices (like Scalia, Thomas, Roberts, and Alito) on the Supreme Court and on all other courts.

So back to the left, apparently ruining the life of a small business owner in favor of luxury condominiums and a Sears Tire Center is “Standing up for the Little Guy”. This is what happens when you govern by feelings and opinions and not by the rule of law and the Constitution. This is what happens when you fall prey to the concept of the Constitution as an “Evolving Document”. Thanks to Laura Ingraham and her show yesterday for pointing this story out. This story should give us all pause. We live in the United States of America, not Communist China.
