Schiff on the Constitution

Peter Schiff’s video blog today is interesting for several reasons — not the least of which is, as always, his sage economic advice.  Schiff gives his take on the nomination of Judge Sonia Sotomayor to the Supreme Court and the idea of the “living” Constitution.  He gives a rigorous and salient defense of constitutional principles.

I have long wondered why so many ignore the fact that the Constitution need not be cleverly “interpreted” when it can simply be amended, but some do ignore that fact, preferring to rely on executive force or judicial activism to get their way.  Followed correctly, the Constitution is both a conservative and progressive document.  But who would want to take the time to do that?
