".....conservatives must abandon their imprecise opposition to "judicial activism" and advocate for more vigorous judicial engagement in protecting liberty from the vortex of the regulatory state....."

That sounds to me like conservative doubletalk. At what point does judicial review become judicial activism? Or is it all in the eye of the beholder?

Judicial review becomes judicial activism when the review invents rights that were not there in the first place, or takes away rights that are. It can happen with both Conservative as well as Liberal judges, but in recent history, the last 50 years, it has been the Liberal wing of the judiciary that has been most activist.

I agree, it seems a fundamental right to know what taxes you are paying. It seems they are listed on the ticket but never on the front end when we buy the ticket.

All the hidden fees are getting ridiculous, I need to know which ones are from taxes and which ones are made up from the business.

You can make a "governmental compliance fee" just to pay for your accounting office but it's not actually a tax. I'd like to know.
