Oddly enough, people like you who claim to value individual rights and to understand the Constitution know so little of its history. Start with Federalist Paper Number 10.

    Bill of Rights Institute: Federalist Papers No. 10
    Have read #10...You should be well aware that the Federalist Papers are not the Constitution, lol. They were a part of the explanation and sales job of the Constitution to those individually sovereign 13 states. So, why not give this a look see as well, The Federalist #33 You will note that the Federal government was sold on the grounds that it would be limited to its enumerated powers... agreed by Hamilton that that the Federal government has bounds and should not go beyond its limited commission.

    "If the federal government should overpass the just bounds of its authority and make a tyrannical use of its powers, the people, whose creature it is, must appeal to the standard they have formed, and take such measures to redress the injury done to the Constitution as the exigency may suggest and prudence justify."

    But in any event, you will notice...

    Even with the court system its the majority that rules... when the SC makes a decision, is it the minority that wins the case, is it? With a jury its the minority that wins, huh?

    Those bill of rights protections are what I just spoke of previously. They in no way assure that the minority view wins... that is simply ludicrous.

    Then individual rights are a joke. As an individual you have no rights. You are just a member of the mob and you hope that the mob does not turn on you. Quite a view for a conservative to take.

    Yeah, give me a country that protects individual rights against the mob and feel free to call it "judicial tyranny" if you want. I call it conservative principles, which you apparently have forgotten. You do nothing but spew populist rhetoric.
    Supply sources for all the trash talking you are doing here, what a joke.

    Polls are not sufficiently conclusive to spout such nonsense, unless they are elections polls ... give that some critical cogitation, if you will.

    That your little schtick now?

    The view is of truth, my fellow citizen...if you can't handle the truth, to bad so sad...for you. I am fine with how well they, the founders, put it all together... they understood the unrestrained power of the few... and the Federal government.

    ...Seriously?

    “All, too, will bear in mind this sacred principle, that though the will of the majority is in all cases to prevail, that will, to be rightful, must be reasonable; that the minority possess their equal rights, which equal laws must protect, and to violate which would be oppression.” -Thomas Jefferson

    "The great danger in republics is that the majority will not respect the rights of minority.” -James Madison

    Perhaps these two.

    You are free to love and to marry whomever you care to [ as long as they want as well ], nobody is stopping you. Just do not expect the marriage to be sanctioned by the state... or by the rest of us. Oh, and if your penchant is love and marriage to children, I would wait on the whole consummation of marriage thing. Prison may or may not be your bag.

    And we are at least somewhat in agreement on the whole taxes thing... I agree, lets pay less taxes to this overbearing government, limit its size...yeah man...kumbaya my lord, kumbaya...
    Who the **** said anything about marriage to kids?

    So that would mean anybody that is not married could sue who, the Federal government, if they are not married? Would that not be an undeniable denial of one's civil rights?
