Clarence Thomas on the Constitution

The Wall Street Journal has an excerpt worth reading in its entirety from a speech given by Clarence Thomas on interpreting the Constitution. Here is a snippet that is certainly true:

As I have traveled across the country, I have been astounded just how many of our fellow citizens feel strongly about their constitutional rights but have no idea what they are, or for that matter, what the Constitution says. I am not suggesting that they become Constitutional scholars -- whatever that means. I am suggesting, however, that if one feels strongly about his or her rights, it does make sense to know generally what the Constitution says about them. It is at least as easy to understand as a cell phone contract -- and vastly more important.

Cell phone contracts are rather simple actually: if you cancel in less than 2 years, they take your first born.
