http://www.debatepolitics.com/polls/...e-race-12.html (Does the term redneck refer to a culture or race?) Part of your problem is that you deny that SCOTUS can make determinations of Constitutional meaning. This has been firmly established in Federalist 81:There is also plenty of information from both Hamilton and Madison that the Constitution was written with the idea that it did NOT compile each and every situation, allowing for the necessity of Constitutional determination. All of this indicates that SCOTUS certainly can make determinations. I have demonstrated my position with case law and the Constitution itself. Nullification cannot occur. This makes the federal government having power over the states.A constitution is, in fact, and must be regarded by the judges, as a fundamental law. It, therefore, belongs to them to ascertain its meaning, as well as the meaning of any particular act proceeding from the legislative body.
