Spoken like a fawning lawyer worshiping at the trough. Where in the Constitution does it say that the Supreme Court (which didn't exist when the Constitution was ratified) is the final arbiter on the meaning of the Constitution? The Constitution created only a Chief Justice of the U.S. The inferior courts and the expansion of the Supreme Court didn't happen until the Judiciary Act was passed in 1789. Because you're probably a lawyer incapable of considering that legal precedent is not, a priori, the immutable truth, you are also incapable of even entertaining the possibility that Congress (like President Obama) could also declare itself to be the ultimate arbiter of the Constitution's meaning.

Spoken lik one who has not bothered to read the Constitution. If he had, then he would know that Article III, Section one provides that "The judicial Power of the United States, shall be vested in one supreme Court." Judicial power is the power to determine what the law is, and since the Constitution is the supreme law, what is constitutional. Not the Congress.

No one claims that precedent is infalible truth, but it is what gives the law consitency so that peple, and businesses, can be able to plan for the future and not be subject to the passing political whims. Do the courts make mistakes? Certainly. But those mistakes usually do get corrected over time.The system has worked for over 200 years and will continue to work.

Please show me in the constitution where it says the above. The declaration of Independence says "WE THE PEOPLE" not We the 5/9ths of the SCOTUS. The SCOTUS is supreme over the courts, NOT THE PEOPLE, and WE THE PEOPLE have the ability and power to override any decision.

Chief Justice John Roberts may have unintentionally given those of us who consider ourselves Constitutionalists a favor.

By doing more damage to the U.S. Constitution in one week than many liberals hope in a lifetime to achieve, Roberts may have finally compelled us to the courage of conviction that will restore the rule of law in America.

Roberts was the deciding in vote in the U.S. Supreme Court telling the sovereign state of Arizona it has no authority to enforce the U.S. Constitution, even though the sovereign states preceded the Constitution, and the Constitution required ratification from the states to become...
