Default Re: Trump says U.S. to impose hefty tariffs on steel, aluminum imports

Here are few more GENERAL statement made as result of SPECIFIC cases.

The Constitution is a written instrument. As such, its meaning does not alter. That which it meant when it was adopted, it means now. –
South Carolina v. United States, 199 U.S. 437, 448 (1905)

The ultimate touchstone of constitutionality is the Constitution itself and not what we have said about it. –
Felix Frankfurter, Graves vs. New York; 1939

"It may be that it is the obnoxious thing in its mildest and least repulsive form; but illegitimate and unconstitutional practices get their first footing in that way, namely, by silent approaches and slight deviations from legal modes of procedure. ...It is the duty of courts to be watchful for the constitutional rights of the citizen, and against any stealthy encroachments thereon."
— Justice Joseph Bradley - United States Supreme Court (1886)

Not sure who made this statement but it's generally true as well.
"When people who are honestly mistaken learn the truth, they will either cease being mistaken, or cease being honest!"
Hope is the dream of the waking man.

For there is hope of a tree, if it be cut down, that it will sprout again, and that the tender branch thereof will not cease.
Job 14:6-8
