Justices Scalia & Breyer on the Constitution

On October 31st, C-SPAN showed Justices Scalia & Breyer discuss their different views on interpreting the U.S. Constitution. This program highlights the judicial philosophies of these justices that use the originalist view (Scalia) and the evolving document view (Breyer).

Which one of these men is right? This is a very important question, because the nine Justices of the Supreme Court have a tremendous amount of power over us and we need to conclude the judicial philosophy we believe in before the appointment of the next Justice. It is my sincere hope there won't be another appointment before President Obama leaves office.

By now you've discovered that in my opinion Justice Scalia is right but watch the program and you decide.
