    When he was a senator Barack Obama voted against confirming both of Bush's supreme court nominees.

    This isn't tit for tat. This is a life and death struggle between two competing ideologies and worldviews. The side which loses is thoroughly dominated by the side that wins.

    Well, I'm not going to get into which acts of who violated it - I'm just stating that the Supreme Court, and other courts, has the power of judicial review to ensure that Congress does not violate the Ninth Amendment as they interpret it.
    Also, we need to legalize recreational drugs and prostitution.

    I'm already gearing up for Finger Vote 2014.

    Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.

    Did you see the part where Redress said, "This is true even if it's a republican president?"

    Just when I think you couldn't own yourself any worse with your own words, you go and own yourself with someone else's.

    On second thought, you're not all that smart.

    Stick to the subject of the thread, don't comment on the other members, and I won't have to draw you to the attention of the moderators.
