Progressive, socialist-minded ideology permeating the U.S. Supreme Court is destroying constitutional democracy, according to one of the high court’s own, Antonin Scalia, who has been called an “originalist” when it comes to interpreting the nation’s founding document while deciding cases.

During a recent speech at Santa Clara University Law School in California, Scalia disagreed with the assumption that he is the conservative leader on a conservative-dominated court. Rather, he says he’s actually a minority member on a left-leaning court, which he says is evidenced by a slew of recent decisions in favor of bigger government centralized in Washington, D.C.

In describing the high court as “liberal,” Scalia criticized in no uncertain terms what he believes are a number of bad decisions that are heralding the “destruction of our democratic system.”

As reported by SF Gate, Scalia believes the high court is also conveying rights to citizens that the Constitution does not convey or guarantee specifically, such as gay marriage and federally subsidized health insurance, via Obamacare.

Further, he noted that interpretation of the Constitution as a “living document” – one that should essentially change with the times – began in the 1920s shortly after the era of our first truly progressive president, Woodrow Wilson. Supreme Court justices of the day interpreted the “guarantee of due process of law to protect fundamental rights not explicitly mentioned in constitutional text,” the paper noted.
