This is true, the Bill of rights merely RECOGNIZES pre-existing rights. Yet racist and xenophobic lower court judges used that decision to hold that there was NO individual right created by the second and thus an individual right does not exist. Senile Stevens chided the majority for overruling rotten precedent based on erroneous interpretations of a supreme court case. That was pathetic

    Does it bother you that every major league constitutional scholar, from Libs like Levinson and Amar to moderates to people like Volokh all have concluded that the right is individual?
    Why do you try to lay the rap that liberals hate guns? I am very liberal and I love guns.

    List of baby-eating, fascist presidents:
    Abraham Lincoln
    Teddy Roosevelt
    Franklin Roosevelt
    Kennedy was young, good-looking, and had his life cut short - however, much like Reagan, he inspired the nation at the time to fall back in love with America.

    Please note, I'm not a Republican (nor have I been since my early 20s) - but my top 2 are Republicans.

    and some conservatives hate prayer in school, support the right to burn flags and have no problem with gay marriage and abortion (ie me) However every federal gun restriction passed in american history by congress was dem sponsored and dem supported.

    Then why do conservatives always bad mouth intellectuals? For instance, I heard Mitch McConnell flaming Kagan for being an ivory tower intellectual.

    Only if one stops giving a s**t about other people.

    I once worked for Dan Quayle as did a friend of mine. Now, neither of us would vote for a current Republican if I was paid to.

    Mostly thanks to Bush.

    Edited: PLEASE note the word "current".

    There you go again. Democrat does not equal liberal. There a moderate liberals and conservatives in both major parties. Extremists don't tend to do well, it's the nature of our system whch forces each party to appeal to the middle.

    We have a place for extremists in this country, it's called the media. Name one liberal congressman or senator who is as far to the left as Keith Olberman, or a conservative one as far to the right as Mike Savage.

    If you're going to bash a particular group of people with every post, at least call them what they are.

    Because there are many intellectuals so disconnected from reality that they usually go for these schemes where they get to plan and decide. These intellectuals usually don't like hearing that spontaneous order can decide, because that would exclude any chance for them to be an elite.

    Who shall ascend the hill of the Lord? And who shall stand in his holy place? He who has clean hands and a pure heart, who does not lift up his soul to what is false, and does not swear deceitfully. Psalm 24

    Kennedy is Celtic not Saxon in origin.
    If life gives you Melons you probably have dyslexia.
