Scholar concerned too many are straying from Constitutional principles

These are challenging times for Constitutional scholar Scott Bradley who says he is concerned that people have strayed away from constitutional principles. Bradley, who has run for political offices in the past on the Constitution Party ticket, says it’s to the point where opposing the other party is all that matters in today’s political discourse.

“Something I find really saddening,” Bradley says, “is the fact that the prime directive today in the nation seems to be not to return to or abide by principles. The prime directive seems to be opposing the opposite party.

“It’s like if one party takes one position the other party takes the opposite position. There is no measurement in the dialogue about what principle are we basing this on.”

Bradley still holds Constitution workshops and serves as chairman of the Cache Valley Constitution Commission. He says he will not be voting for either Mitt Romney or Barack Obama this year.
