Two Cheers for Originalism

Michael M. Uhlmann reviews The Constitution: An Introduction, by Michael Stokes Paulsen and Luke Paulsen at The Claremont Review of Books.
"...I would not expect that the critique of substantive due process will be abandoned altogether. But, as I say, it certainly needs rethinking. Arguments from process alone have shown themselves to be of little avail against the juggernaut of rights claims. Sooner or later, constitutional conservatives have to start talking once again about the origin and nature of rights."
