    In other words, you tried to make a point and failed but feel the need to respond with something even if it makes no sense.

    You know, I voted no, but I hadn't considered this point. However, barring this occurence, I don't think a supreme court decision can be unconstitutional. Even if it's reversed later, it just means that they're changed what is 'constitutional'. The previous ruling was still constitutional until it was changed.

    If their rullings constidict the constititon then yes it can be unconstitutional.

But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Well, no one should be impeached just because they make a decision you don't like. That's not what impeachment is for.

    If they define the legal interpetation of the constitution, is it possible for them to contradict it?

    I do not buy into interpretation nonsense. The constitution should either be read and teken litterally or not at all. At most you should pick up a dictionary if you are unaware what a word means.

    Wow, how simple! Why didn't someone think of that before? We don't need a Supreme Court at all! After all, there can never be any debate about what the Constitution means! Why, we didn't even need this thread! Or all those law books!

    Thanks Jamesrage, you've made all of our lives so much easier now that we know that no one ever can have any debates about the Constitution's meaning!
