No they cannot just make it so. Judges cannot declare themselves the law as they are there to interpret the law not be dictators. There is zero legal basis they could use to outlaw congress and the president. Almost every member of the House would vote to impeach and you’d likely get unanimous support for conviction in the Senate.


Republicans who support gay marriage are unlikely to swap sides over gay marriage. They already vote Republican.

Ah my optimistic friend, let me tell you about voter turn out and a motivated base.

I have almost reached the regrettable conclusion that the Negro's great stumbling block in the stride toward freedom is not the White Citizen's Council-er or the Ku Klux Klanner, but the white moderate who is more devoted to "order" than to justice; who prefers a negative peace which is the absence of tension to a positive peace which is the presence of justice; who constantly says "I agree with you in the goal you seek, but I can't agree with your methods of direct action;" who paternalistically feels he can set the timetable for another man's freedom; who lives by the myth of time and who constantly advises the Negro to wait until a "more convenient season." -MLK Jr.

People have a remarkable ability to overlook the suffering of others if it alleviates their own suffering.

We call those people "Dicks."

Well in this scenario, your assertion would be unconstitutional.


Back then? No. People had a sense of integrity.

Nixon would have loved todays senate. All the repubs would have supported Nixon.

Four guys breaking into a hotel in the middle of the night? Pff, they're looking the other way at hundreds storming the Capital building with the intent to disrupt the peaceful transfer of power because they couldn't take an L. If there were an afterlife you have to imagine Nixon going, "Goddammit..."

So remember that two of the five supreme court judges who are likely to vote to overturn Roe v Wade have credible sexual assault allegations against them that got swept under the rug. It’s not about the sanctity of life or the constitution or anything like that, it’s about control over women. Always has been.

It is about sanctity of life not about control over women. Women are doctors, nurses, lawyers, businesswomen, politicians, supreme court justices and all professions. There were many unproven politically based and politically biased charges against them, by the leftist, liberal, democrat, progressives and leftists of all kinds, there was nothing swept under the rug.

The Republican Party not caring about the kids once they're born is also a pretty good indicator that the "sanctity of life" thing is just a talking point.

Once they're born, they can drink leaded water and get thrown into the foster care system after their parents die from the China virus. Those little bastards better have a good pair of bootstraps.
