Justice Scalia says Supreme Court should take back seat to voters

This from a justice who found new and novel interpretations of the Necessary and Proper Clause to overrule the wishes of the voters of the State of California when it came to medical marijuana - and thereby missed a chance to take a bite out of Wickard.

Scalia talks the talk when it comes to originalism, but at times he fails to walk the walk.

He said such decisions can't be made without a moral judgment, and should therefore be left to voters or the politicians they elect.

Liar.
