    If you add "unlimited", you changed my statement to something that is false. The statement I actually made, however, is true.
    You can't reason anyone out of a position they didn't reason themselves into in the first place.

    But, then again, they may realize that they will have no recourse to decide that they'll have to over-turn all the lower court decisions.

    You really think every one of those lower courts are just activist judges, don't you?

    You can't resist making it personal, can you?

    Yes, apdst, I am challenging statements you personally made. This is a debate forum, after all.

    So, tell me, why do you think the Supreme Court would need to overturn all the lower courts' rulings? Why do you think every single circuit court has made a mistake?

    I made no such statement in this thread.

    Feel free to clarify this statement then. Why do you think they could have "no recourse [but] to decide they'll have to over-turn all the lower court decisions?" Is there a reason you might expect this?

    I don't see anything there about activist judges.

    And I don't see any clarification that would help with my apparent confusion.

    If you're confused, it's your problem, not mine. Stop trying to make your problem my problem.
