No Steve, the *originalist* view of gay marriage would be,* leave it to the 
individual states to decide*. That is an issue of the tenth amendment. At what 
point the Federal government then imposes it upon the other states, I'm not 
sure. Could be >50% or 2/3rds or 3/4s or none. The original intent of the 
founding fathers gave states much more power over such matters than the federal 
government. The feds would step in when there was conflict between states.

    Okay, take one example. Gay marriage.  Strictly interpreted 
constitution-wise, ala Originalism, the verdict would be "no".
But allowing for changing attitudes, with a slightly more liberal 
interpretation, the answer would be "yes"
Issues seem easier to resolve in theory than in practice.

"Originalism" sounds like what I would call common sense. 
If you don't approve of what the original constitution lays down then get your 
elected representatives to amend the constitution by due process. How hard can 
it be?

The idea that a bunch of lawyers - who I've never voted for - can "interpret" 
the original wording in a way more in line with their own prejudices and 
clearly at odds with the obvious reading doesn't bode well.  #yiv7452010927
