Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia dies at 79

America is a poorer nation with the loss of Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia.

Say what you will about his body of work, but Justice Scalia was a staunch advocate for state’s rights and saw the constitution as a contract with the American people.

Not a rubric, which could be changed on the whim of public opinion.

I respected his opinions on the dramatic overreach of Washington impinging on local rule.

I will miss his voice defending American’s liberties as inherent and not granted by government.

Scalia believed that the Bill Of Rights curtailed government intrusion into the life of its citizens, that those rights are granted to every human.
