    would do no good as long as we had Supreme Court Justices who don't care what the Constitution says, because they know better what the Founders meant because God or money or Real Americans or something.

    The clearest case of this in US history is the claim by the Confederacy that the Confederate Constitution was the actual Original Intent of the (slave-owning) Founders. Whenever you hear the phrase Original Intent, think of Jefferson Davis.

    Also, when you hear about the line-item veto, which was in the Confederate Constitution, and about keeping the Federal government out of infrastructure spending (ditto), and especially about this being a Christian country (ditto ditto).

    Back off, man. I'm a logician.—GOPBusters™
