    What is your point, friday, and how can you relate it to the topic of the thread?
    Hey, this isn't my rabbit trail. My only point was that the 14th amendment has not resulted in the complete incorporation of the entire bill of rights or constitution to the states.

    yeah, but the Constitution is just a "guide". Its merely "advisory".

    discrimination is therefore legal.

    The Constitution most certainly did not prevent discrimination or guarantee basic rights for all at its inception, and not for quite some time afterwards. The tyranny of the majority was alive and well for the first 100+ years.
    I'm already gearing up for Finger Vote 2014.

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

    The fact remains that a law disliked by many people were enforceable, contrary to your arguement.


    You're free to believe it means even less than nothing. It does not require your belief. It simply is.
    I know I'm free to believe what I want - the Constitution protects that right - not "natural law" as you define it - which is why I'm glad that the Constitution is the supreme law of the land, and not "natural law" however you want to define it.

    I want Thunder to read about it, since Thunder was the one rather haughtily positing that somebody else didn't understand the Constitution and the Supreme Court, and furthermore that liberals are the ones having to teach conservatives about these things.

    He won't. He'll just keep ignoring me since it's more convenient for him to do so than it would be for him to admit he might've been wrong.

    Tyranny over the silent minority is still alive and well because of our judicial process. The problem with the judicial process was that we somehow thought that the judges were going to do their job of unbiased interpretation instead of agenda driven legislation from the bench.
