    Since when do we use POLLS to change the Constitution? We have an amendment process, the Constitution doesn't evolve until it's amended. That's why we have 27 amendments.

    The SCOTUS doesn't need a new amendment for every ruling. And as the SCOTUS is made up of members of our era, it's only natural that they'll make interpretations of the Constitution based on the mores of that era. They are the products of the times they grew up in.

    I think you may be looking at the rulings as somehow being led by the polls, when in reality the polls are nothing more than a reflection of the changing times.

    Oh, no! Not the Pee Wee Herman response! "I know you are, but what am I?
    I said "especially", so that wipes out the Constitution, and you don't have to back up what you said. Impeccable logic!

    I don't know why the lefties put themselves through all this. Why don't they just admit that they want what they want, they know it's not Constitutional, but they just want it anyway? You wouldn't be such easy targets then.

    What a bunch of hysterical drivel. When you've calmed down you can come back and try to make an argument.

    No I was responding to another poster, and you stepped in to debate on something I said to him. This it was taken out of context.

    I didn't, so I asked the question. Since you're both liberal you would read his comment differently than me probably.
