    There is nothing in COTUS allowing EO's by a President, or the power of Judicial Review by the Supreme Court, or that prevents a citizen from owning a nuclear weapon, or voting twice, or same sex marriage, or ...a myriad of things.

    Her and Snowe have been more honest than most give them credit. Snowe has been out of office for awhile but her and Collins have served Maine as very good Republican Senators...

    Unfortunately most Republicans fail to have the same respect for the rule of law.

    That's fine with me. Then they can fail together too.

    on a die note....

    I think, though there have been no signs of it, that Trump will pick a WOMAN justice.... not that he really wants a woman, but the "show Business" of it, is what he likes.....and this could change the focus off of Stare Decisis.... and dare Dems to not vote for a woman, and dare Collins to not vote for a woman...
    ;)


    but what is most important for Trump, is NOT abortion rights, other than his promise to the evangelical supporters....

    HIS PRIORITY is finding a Justice that believes the President, can not be charged with a crime, or be subpoenaed, or can pardon themselves of their own crimes and felonies.... he wants a justice that believes the President, is a King.

    :D:D
