New Blue Nightmare: Clarence Thomas and the Amendment of Doom
by Charles Cherry
Taken seriously today, that approach to the Constitution would change the way Washington does business. Radically. The list of enumerated powers is short and does not include, for example, health care, education, agricultural subsidies, assistance to the hungry or old age pensions. Most of the New Deal and Great Society with the interesting exception of civil rights laws which enforce the Civil War era amendments would be struck down. Whole cabinet departments would close.
Ah…that’s music to my ears!
