Danger - Heartbreak Dead Ahead
Please read this post from Powerline on the EPA's decision to regulate CO2 as a pollutant.
Even the cautious lawyers at Powerline recognize how late the hour is, as evidenced by this excerpt:
...The architects of the modern administrative state with its vast array of administrative agencies combining legislative, executive, and judicial powers have sought to displace the system of self-government imagined under limited powers into being by the American Constitution. As we see in the case of the EPA endangerment finding, they have achieved extraordinary success.
it is important to understand what is happening at its roots so that resistance can lead to restoration. Given the abdication of the courts under the doctrine of the living Constitution -- meaning, as my friend Steven Hayward says, that the written Constitution is dead -- it remains in the hands of Congress to take back the powers it has ceded to administration.
And if not this Congress with the blessing of this president, then another Congress with the blessing of the next president.
Your statement assumes a fact not in evidence, counselor.
It is an entirely open question, ladies and gentlemen of the jury, as to whether or not it is even possible, in these early days of the 21st century, to elect a Congress with a majority that understands and adheres to the Constitution and Bill of Rights, as written.
What if such a thing can no longer be done?
Do you understand yet?
