    How do you get a country to follow their constitution by using the very constitution they are ignoring?

    If you really feel that way, call a lawyer. It'll take some time, but you'll get your day in court eventually. You should get started, the court won't be conservative for long. That's funny isn't it? There's been some complaining about the courts on the last page, yet the court is conservative.

    You know, it's entirely possible that you're wrong. Have you considered that?

    So I'm supposed go to court to complain about the court? That makes no sense.

    Except I'm not.

    You're saying that they aren't adhering to the Constitution. So, pick a law you think violates the Constitution, and start working up the legal ladder. If you disagree with their holding, well too bad. Their word is mostly final.

    Unless you're saying you think the SCOTUS itself is violating the Constitution. If that's the case, well, it's still too damned bad for you. If they were going to agree with you, I'd imagine it would be now, when the court is conservative. If you still don't agree with them, I'd suggest re-evaluating your positions on issues.

    Expect to see more places like Hilton Head where every community is gated, most with their own security, and some of them have their own fire departments just to keep people out. It is just a matter of time until less rich places follow that model.

    Lol city folk are funny. Those gated communities would be the first burnt to the ground if it did come to blows. They would be gone up in smoke.

    The poll does not have the option Other. If we are going to have a Civil War it will be a COLD Civil War. Keep in mind a Civil War will involve the governments of States and possibly subsets of States. Basically what will happen is that some of the States will refuse to cooperate with the Federal Government for the execution of Federal Laws such as those that address medical marijuana, or those of light bulbs. Also programs which are unfunded mandates form the Federal Government will not followed by the States. Furthermore, if masses of people do not cooperate in providing information or following other types of requirements there is not much that the Federal Government can do outside of random prosecution of people.

    That doesn't really work all that well when the problem is interpretation pf the constitution.

    Unless you're saying you think the SCOTUS itself is violating the Constitution. If that's the case, well, it's still too damned bad for you.

    Well it's pretty clear they gave themselves power that they were never intended to have long ago. My positions are however fine and I have no reason to re-evaluate them at this time.

    You can always tell me one place I'm wrong.
