John and I discuss the upcoming referendum in California, where barring a conservative reformation in the state, will certainly pass. Recent polls show 60 percent of the public in favor. This provides and interesting contrast in constitutional views of the right and the left. Everyone supports the Constitution when it comes to pushing their agenda. It’s when something they oppose is on the ballot, that all of a sudden the Constitution takes a back seat to the overwhelming need at hand. This is exactly what the framer/founders wanted to avoid when they drafted the document. The Constitution was not intended to be flexible and allow a sliding scale of enforcement. Rather, limited government was its primary goal. Perhaps we are in the process of getting back to this fundamental core belief.
