    feel free to discuss those

    anyone who claimed that the second amendment didn't recognize an individual right was a hack. Did you read the crap Stevens spewed or Breyer

    two of the most idiotic dissents I have ever read

    oh how easy it is to call them idiotic.

    To present proof that your opinion is any more relevant than a lunatic ranting in the park... that's the rub, turtle.

    well many legal scholars took issue with Breyer. His dissent was based on an outcome based analysis that fundamental constitutional rights can change based on the environment in which they are asserted.

    Stevens was even more vapid. Most of the collectivist opinions at the lower courts come from an outcome based erroneous interpretation of the 140 or so year old Cruikshank opinion that said that the constitution did not create a right to keep and bear arms and if the constitution ceased to exist the right wouldn't change. 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?

    Re: Your Favorite President?

    I think enough people have responded; I'll make the cutoff here, count the votes for each president, and post another thread with a poll containing the top ten picks.

    Please note that I asked for your favorite president. If you provided more than one response, I simply used the first president you mentioned as your vote.

    Semifinal Tally:

    Lincoln: 6
    Clinton: 6
    Eisenhower: 4
    Jefferson: 3
    Madison: 2
    Obama: 2
    FDR: 2
    Cleveland: 2
    Teddy: 2
    Nixon: 1
    Reagan: 1
    Martin Van Buren: 1
    Washington: 1
