SCOTUS ain't a bunch of dictators. They don't decide what the constitution is. The people decide what the constitution is. They merely interpret the intent of the people and the founders.
Final thought because I missed this post earlier:
You have 4 sentences in that post & all 4 are totally incorrect:SCOTUS ain't a bunch of dictators
....Yes they are & they are appointed for life to keep them above politics & current sentiment.They don't decide what the constitution is
.....Yes they do.The people decide what the constitution is.
....No they don't...the SCOTUS does.They merely interpret the intent of the people and the founders...
..They can't talk to the founders & they are appointed for life to keep them unaffected by the current, fickle will of the people. (that was the whole point of appointing them for life)
I hope you guys appreciate the college level course I have just given you in Constitutional Law. (you each owe me $1200.00 for tuition!)
