A question for the listserv: I am trying to come up with a list of
principles and specific rules for construing the Constitution. Besides the
general principles of federalism (or limited federal and state government),
separation of powers, representative democracy, rule of law, judicial
review, "living constitution" (or evolving standards), and originalism, and
the specific rules of statutory construction (as seen in, e.g.,
Sutherland's treatise), what other principles and rules come to mind?
Thanks in advance!
