Mr. Dinan: You've been talking about going after activist judges since at least 1997. The [Terri] Schiavo case gives you a chance to do that, but you've recently said you blame Congress for not being zealous in oversight.
Mr. DeLay: Not zealous. I blame Congress over the last 50 to 100 years for not standing up and taking its responsibility given to it by the Constitution. The reason the judiciary has been able to impose a separation of church and state that's nowhere in the Constitution is that Congress didn't stop them. The reason we had judicial review is because Congress didn't stop them. The reason we had a right to privacy is because Congress didn't stop them.
The only reason we have a right to privacy is because the Congress didn't 'stop them'? Are you kidding me?
So, in Mr. DeLay's world, there would be no right to privacy. The government would be able to control every aspect of your life.
In Mr. DeLay's world, there would be no ability for the Supreme Court to review the constitutionality of laws passed by congress. Protection of minority groups would be permanently gone.
And, in Mr. DeLay's world, Pat Robertson would be the Supreme Ruler of the United Theocracy of America.
Mr. DeLay claims that the Democrats have no agenda. You know what? I would prefer their 'no agenda' any day to DeLay's agenda. I personally like right to privacy and freedom of religion.
