An outstanding tribute to an extraordinary jurist. His professionalism as a public servant -- restraining himself to the Constitution itself rather than his own personal beliefs or desires -- resonates deeply with me, both as a public servant myself who risked personal convenience to lawfully restrain my own official action, and also as a private citizen injured by multiple public servants who lacked the character and professionalism to do the same.
Justice Scalia's approach to our law is the bedrock of public service, the rule of law and our very system of government. It is critical if we are to avoid corruption and tyranny, or more accurately, if we are to loosen tyranny's existing grasp on our nation. His textual approach is not merely an interesting viewpoint to be argued or debated in sprightly coffee shop conversation. Rather, his approach is absolutely essential to our Republic and our democracy.
Sadly, I find Justice Scalia's professional approach sorely lacking in public servants across our federal government today be they politician, military officer, judge or law enforcement. America suffers and is weakened accordingly. For me, Justice Scalia was a light in this American darkness. He will be greatly missed and already is. This is an excellent video tribute.
