Another Something to Think About
What do privacy and democracy have in common?
Neither are mentioned in either the Declaration of Independence or the Constitution.
In striking down Roe v Wade the Supreme Court indicated that the Constitution does not guarantee or protect a right of privacy because there is no mention or articulation of the concept of privacy in the Constitution hence, no such right exists.
The Constitution established a Federal democratic republic. It is the system of the Federal Government; it is democratic because the people govern themselves; and it is a republic because the Government’s power is derived from its people.
The word “democracy” was neither used in the Declaration of Independence nor in the Constitution. Indeed, the Founding Fathers were anxious and fearful of allowing any form of tyranny, including the tyranny of the majority.
Clarence Thomas indicated that other rights may be targeted and tossed by the Court as invalid liberal or progressive overreach by the Court in earlier decisions which seemed to reflect evolutionary changes in societal attitudes and perspectives…
Was Thomas hinting that democracy itself may be placed on the Court’s draconian chopping block because nowhere is the word “democracy” mentioned in the Declaration of Independence or the U.S. Constitution?
