“The fact is we have the most conservative court since the early 1930s and maybe more conservative than that. These justices, led by Scalia, believe in original intent. They want to judge cases the way the Founding Fathers would. Well, the Founding Fathers, need I remind us all, wrote slavery into the Constitution. It took a civil war and the 13th Amendment to get it out.”
