    Tim-
    No problem. The one that pissed me off the most was the Arizona immigration one. I've been using the Virginia and Kentucky resolutions for years to make multiple immigration arguments. I used it to defend Arizona's right to pass the law in question... despite my own vehement political disagreement with the law (I would actively oppose such a law being passed in Illinois).

    I have the expectation that a Supreme Court justice should be capable of the same degree of objectivity on a constitutional argument that I am capable of. I do not allow my own personal political views to influence my assessment of constitutionality. they should not do so either. It's one thing to have an underlying philosophy which guides their understanding of the constitution. I support all Justices having that and using it consistently. It's the lack of consistency that pisses me off. The blatant hypocrisy.

    Scalia pisses me off the most because when it does suit his purposes, he makes the argument I would make. When it doesn't suit his purposes, he'll undermine the **** out of those same arguments.

    It should be redesigned to stop discrimination/intimidation for everyone and not just select groups.

    Your opinion does not make it unconstitutional.

No doubt these particular states also have laws protecting the right to vote. Frankly I think that's what Scalia is shooting for, though he may have phrased it a bit blunt for the sensitive. We should strive to remove laws that are unnecessary once they're no longer needed, and I think this will help heal the racial gap in the long run.
    I did not think you believed in an activist supreme court. Do you?

    Activist judges ignore the constitution. It's a pretty simple distinctions mister (LOL) "libertarian".

    And his statement reveals a profound lack of understanding of how our govt works and his own belief in "limited gubmint".

    It's not the job of the judicial branch to do the legislatives' heavy lifting. A future court could use that logic to say that since tax cuts are "very difficult to get them out through the normal political process", the court should invalidate any tax cut.

    What an outrageous lie. He did NOT say "limited gubmint" - though you FALSELY put in quotes to claim he did.

    And since it is a totally lying and sneering false quote, of course justabubba and LiberalAvenger love it. The bigger and more insulting the lie, the better.

    You're missing the point. I'm not pro life, but its funny how the left thinks that Roe v Wade isn't activist but whenever its something that they don't agree with it is.

    This may surprise you, but quotation marks have uses beyond the mere quoting of what someone said.

    For example, I could say that I found your response to be quite...umm "enlightening"
