Power Line - Danger heartbreak dead ahead

Power Line - Danger heartbreak dead ahead: "The architects of the modern administrative state with its vast array of administrative agencies combining legislative, executive, and judicial powers have sought to displace the system of self-government imagined under limited powers into being by the American Constitution. As we see in the case of the EPA endangerment finding, they have achieved extraordinary success.

it is important to understand what is happening at its roots so that resistance can lead to restoration. Given the abdication of the courts under the doctrine of the living Constitution -- meaning, as my friend Steven Hayward says, that the written Constitution is dead -- It remains in the hands of Congress to take back the powers it has ceded to administration."
