We’re back! This week we discuss the Framers’ use of the term “people” (as in, “we the”) and “person.” I’m joined by contributor Joe Escalante, who, in addition to being a rock star and a matador, is a temporary judge on the Los Angeles Superior Court, as well as member Doug Lee, a leading force in the anti-Obamacare litigation and Mississippi’s personhood initiative. Together we hash out the radical theory that “the people” referred to citizens (not Gitmo detainees), question the legal basis for birthright citizenship (risking the wrath of Harry Reid), and wonder why liberals consider the Constitution to be a living creature while a fetus is just a clump of cells.

It’s been a rough week for Team Mitt, but we do our best to keep our sunny side up.

High fives to Ricochet member (and now contributor!) Rick Wilson. He wins the highly coveted, much sought after Ricochet Podcast Member Post of The Week for his post, Pictures Matter. We see a mug in your future, Rick.
