    Which, unlike SCOTUS, was the correct call.
    uhm the governor only has so much control FYI
    there can still be punishment it just wont come from him
    like the judge that is going against the fed he has no power and could find himself being punished also

    He cannot say "there will be no punishment", depending on how the contempt case(s) turn out - he has no control over penalties issued by a Federal court.

    It is ridiculous to assert that equal protection doesn't apply to any action involving more than one party. Since all contracts are between more than one party, your assertion is that contract law is wholly excluded from the equal protection clause.

    Numerous court precedents reject this notion. Not the least of which is Loving, in which marriage contracts between two individuals of different races were being blocked. Your assertion is that equal protection wouldn't apply because each person in that marriage could get married, just not to each other. Rejected.

    You keep declaring with such certainty that SCOTUS will rule in favor of states' rights. Are you willing to bet on it? I will give you 3:1 odds. My $30 forum donation against your $10 forum donation that the Supreme Court will rule that same-sex marriage bans are unconstitutional under the 14th amendment. I want to know if you are really as confident as you try to appear.

    This offer extends to any DP member.

    It's about time there was an uprising against the all powerful federal government. They've been grabbing power that they were never supposed to have for hundreds of years. I think we need some amendments that give the States a much quicker route to knock the feds back when they do what they are not allowed to do. And all these judges, including the Supreme Court, need to have limited terms and an a better check against their actions.

    Do you want all judges to be elected rather than appointed?

    Are you really advocating treason here? an "uprising"?

    I would actually agree that the Supreme court justices should be term-limited, and there are some proposals out there that would ensure every president got to nominate one or two justices during their term in office. But "uprising"? that's ridiculous

    No, they can still be appointed, just not for life. We don't need that. Plus, sometimes it just time to go. People retire from their jobs when they get too old, many of these guys stay past their usefulness.

    I think he's right about the better check. Certainly there should be an easier way to overturn SCOTUS decisions than the full Amendment Process. I'm thinking a supermajority of Congress w/ a Presidential Signature ought to be a good (tentative) step.
