    Do you also support the Hamiltonian reinterpretation of the general welfare clause, or do you pick and choose which hamiltonian reinterpretations you support?
    Hamilton didn't reinterpret the general welfare clause; that's an easily refuted myth. Besides, trying to justify your authority after the fact doesn't quite carry the weight of selling the Constitution to the People so that it may be ratified.

    That's why we have the 2nd Amendment.

    Technically, no. Who decides whether an opinion is unconstitutional? The Supreme Court. It's a catch 22.

    In my opinion, have they ever made decisions that run counter to the Constitution? Of course (including the one today about Miranda).

    in the long run though someone has to be the "decider" at the top, and it's them.

    It's a phrase used by people who are child-like and immature and have nothing to add to an adult conversation, and as such should be ignored.
