So Jim Crow was OK until SCOTUS said it wasn't?
Again, it's not whether the law is good or bad. You have a single person deciding what laws to enforce.
A "good" law, in this context, is Constitutional. A "bad" one is unconstitutional.
I'm not comfortable waiting for SCOTUS. Asking one branch of government to rule on the legality of another branch of government is a recipe for disaster.
If people would remember who is supposed to run things around here, we'd all be better off.
Until then, asking the question, "Where did it all go wrong?" is just mental masturbation.
To stay on topic. If ONE person decides a law is bad, then maybe the next person will too. And eventually, we'll have a majority of people realizing the difference and maybe we could take the county back without firing a shot.
But if we go around waiting for SCOTUS to decide, we just put the leg irons on ourselves.
