…what is law but people telling people what to do, what not to do? Would you rather have a deliberative congress, comprised of representatives of the body of the people, tell you what to do, what not to do, or would you rather one man, or his friends, or five judges, or their friends, tell you what to do, what not to do.
Naturally, generally, you would choose neither, but given that you’d presumably rather also not have complete anarchy, then it is safe to presume that you would rather the representative, deliberative body, telling people what to do, which, as it may enter as a surprise, makes you a Constitutionalist!
…and on those people that are vested with the power of telling people what to do, what not to do, who, or what, tells THEM what to do, what not to do? That’s right! The Constitution, you Constitutionalist! By the way, that Constitution doesn’t tell YOU what to do, what not to do, just THEM, and it also says that ONLY they, that deliberative, representative body, can make law, not one man, or his friends, or five judges, or their friends.
