    Senator Leahy is unnecessarily alarmist. She is not attempting a Constitutional run around to transform us into a socialist state, like some senators and jurists we know. However, she, like him, is a nationalist favoring administration, and less than sensitive to Common Law, not believing in the separation of power respecting the exercise of Constitutional right and private remedy, the respect for its primacy out of an acknowledgement that the individual citizen counts, over the identity politics and the state, and there to State Constitutional protections before Federal recourse for inadequacy. But better than any choice he would have made.

    Wow ! An “existential” threat ! There goes one of those almost mandatory P.C. descriptions that supposedly raises the subject to a higher level. Like Merritt Garland was, and Liberalism (socialism) is an “existential” threat to the Constitution of the United States ?
