The Corner

The one and only.

To Ramesh


I just assumed your positive references to the Hatch and Wall Street Journal positions suggested approval of them. But back to your point. Do you apply this quasi-federalist/populist position to other issues, such as abortion? Would you oppose a federal amendment outlawing abortion because it violates states’ rights, or would you leave that to state legislatures (without federal or state court involvement, of course) as a means of democratizing the issue? It is not clear to me if your approach is issue specific for some reason, or a general approach you would apply to constitutional questions.
