    The only way leftists can get anything does is to exploit the "too old, too vague, and too open to someones interpretation: nature of the Constitution.
    So which is it please
    you agree with the leftists you criticize that the Constitution is open to interpretation
    you agree that the Constitution is NOT open to interpretation

    They explain the language of the constitution.

    There's a clear difference between taking a given situation and applying the constitution to it and deciding that you want to be able to do someting and then finding a way to bend the Constitution around it.

    Yes, I did. However, what I said is not a statement that the Constitution is not open to interpretation - it is a statement describing the only way leftists can get things done.

    The Supreme Court is not tasked with interpreting the Constitution. It is tasked with examining laws and determining whether those laws are at variance with the Constitution. Your idea that the Court interprets the Constitution is a non-starter.

    Yes, I imagine that difference is ones own perspectives and beliefs about a certain issue and if the current SC interpretation agrees with you or not.

    It's not even really tasked with doing that. It's tasked with being a court. It doesn't actually do all that much determination of constitutionality.

    And there you go with the dishonest posting. Inserting "current" now.



    Just make an honest point for once and debate it on its merits for the love of god.
