First reply didn't say first. So Ill say it.

FIRST
Im a slightly Authoritarian Moderate, I believe limited monarchies are the best systems of government, and that every 2016 presidential candidate was an idiot.
I personally feel that most people, in the act of trying to sound smart, often usually don't know what the fuck they are talking about.

Gorsuch is the best thing by far, but tariffs are good. We stack the deck against our own with expensive regulations, tariffs help keep the playing field level.

If you want the laws to change you should pass new ones, the option is there.

Times change. We don't need well regulated militias anymore.

SCOTUS is going to get royally fucked up now that the repubs opened the door of holding up a position because they want something else. I wait for the day one of the liberal justice seats open up and the seat remains vacant while they wait for a proper liberal justice. Oh the sweet smell of hypocrisy will be overwhelming.

Yes because the Constitution should be easy to open for the whims of the moment. You guys would LOVE that.

You can change the laws and the Constitution. We have made several Amendments, including the abolition of slavery and female suffrage. This has nothing to do with a change in jurisprudence, a change in the method of interpreting the law.

If you think that then try and repeal that particular amendment. Just trying to pretend it doesn't exist or suddenly means something else is nonsensical.

If you want to change that law, change the actual law by the legal method set up in the country to change the law. Have it removed from the Constitution. There is a process for Amending the Constitution long established and used numerous times.
