    But the same could be said of the Right as well.
    Also, we need to legalize recreational drugs and prostitution.

    I never said that, so obviously I don't buy into it. You do something because you believe in it, not to "stick it" to the other guy. The latter is how nothing gets solved.

    You realize it's it's that "room for interpretation" that resulted in Roe v. Wade. The Supremes somehow found a "right to privacy" that the Constitution never even mentions.

    I wonder if this might be a solution: The executive branch's power, in general, has grown beyond what was originally envisioned. So, to mitigate this, remove the involvement of that branch entirely. Give it to the legislature thus: they must appoint a panel consisting of judges who's responsibility is to appoint new Judges. Each side would appoint an equal number to the panel, with a final single appointee appointed by agreement of both parties in the Congress. If no agreement can be reached on this appointee by a specified date, the "partisan" panelists would take over that responsibility. If they cannot agree, then they would be barred from being nominated again to the panel permanently, and the process would begin again.

    Presumably, over time, the quality of judges would improve as far as non-partisanship. Thus, the panel itself would improve, and the process would deadlock less often.

    I envision the panel holding the responsibility for appointing Supremes as well. I believe this system would restore credibility to the judicial branch over time, which would be an awesome thing.
    Actually, I would prefer something different.

    The Senate would vote to appoint these judges within a time limit. Should the Senate not come to a majority, then the President has the power to appoint whoever he wants, and cannot be stopped by Congress.

    This way, Congress will either come to a consensus or suffer someone else exercising the power. And I would prefer that the President retain his checks on the judiciary. I am very much a fan of checks and balances.
    Also, we need to legalize recreational drugs and prostitution.

    Not quite. SCOTUS thought the Founding Fathers implied a right to privacy within the Constitution, and used the Ninth Amendment, which admits that the Constitution does not exhaustively list all the enumerated rights of citizens, as justification.

    But that is unConstitutional... so that is different. Right to privacy is intended for searches and seizures and such... nobody has a right to "privacy" in the Const. that is retarded. Can people twist it for their own agenda... well yes. It can also be taken back.

    Not true. Right wing judges usually interpret the Constitution more...ah...conservatively.

    No and no. The constitution isnít vague, it just isnít being amended and updated as often as it should be. Do you have a credible source for these ďfounding father intentionsĒ?

    It isnít an evolving document either, except for the evolutions resulting from amendments.
