Re: July 4 article “Judging ‘activism’.” I can agree that judges who rule in a way that gives them more power is activism, but the author’s opinion that judges who rule to limit the legislature are activists is wrong. Reading the Constitution supports my statement.
Throughout the Constitution are rules that say what the government can’t do. The Constitution was a contract between sovereign states and was written in a way that spelled out specifically what powers the federal government has. Judges who rule to limit what the legislature does are following what the framers intended.
