This is just a quick hit post. I saw a headline on yet another court action to stop the Trump administration from doing something that most people assume is within his administrative power to do. And the thought occurred to me that while the Constitution is famously not a “suicide pact” neither is it supposed to be a “straight-jacket” to limit what most people consider fairly common sense and typical government activity.
I am a limited-government proponent, so a court action stopping government action is not per se offensive to my constitutional sensibilities. But the form of law-fare that we have seen over the last two-plus years by progressives both on and off the bench is beyond frustrating. I have had it, and I hope the electorate will emphatically disapprove of this sort of obstruction by progressives in the next election cycle.
