Personal Quotes (2)

I even take the position that sexual orgies eliminate social tensions and ought to be encouraged.
"The Constitution is not a living organism for Pete's sake. It's a legal document. If you told John Marshall that the Constitution morphed ... he would be unbelieving. The death penalty was not considered cruel and unusual punishment. There's no doubt about it. Now it may be a very bad idea. And if the people want to change it, nothing in the Constitution requires that you have the death penalty. But that's quite a different question from whether your Supreme Court ... can decide for the whole country that the death penalty is no longer permitted. If you want to be governed by an aristocracy, there are better aristocracies than nine lawyers." Speech at Stetson University College of Law, April 5, 2007.
