    We shall see how it plays out

    Regardless, Republicans will hold the losing hand

    Certainly it does. The U.S. Constitution should not magically change from generation to generation without so much as an amendment. Stare decisis especially makes liberal judges so dangerous. The difference between a liberal justice and a conservative justice can be seen below.

    Considerations of a Conservative justice on statutory or constitutional interpretation

    Precedent

    Considerations of a Liberal Justice on statutory or constitutional interpretation

    Text
    History
    Tradition
    Precedent
    Purpose (WILDLY SUBJECTIVE)
    Consequences (WILDLY SUBJECTIVE)

    Indeed, the Republic is at stake. Purpose and Consequences are completely new tools of Constitutional interpretation made up by liberal justices within the last 60 years. That and the idea a legal text can change without so much as an amendment is also a liberal phenomenon. Liberals have rendered useless the amendment process and today the U.S. Constitution, in their eyes, can mean everything and anything they want it to.

    ah... if only you were equipped to understand the constitution.

    and you forgot the whole part where the rightwing judges simply make up things like that corporations are people or after 200 plus years, suddenly there is a private right of gun ownership..

    :rofl:

    Why go as low as Dead Ted Kennedy ?

    The slimewad.

    Obama should nominate and the GOP should allow the process to run.

    Republicans only have themselves to blame.

    Better get your guns before it's to late !!!

    B.. b..bu...bu...but...but....

    Al Gore said the Constitution was a "living document".

    How'd that work out for him.

    Not that I agree, at all, with Citizens United.

    It's just funny to see you left wing asswipes bit by your own snakes.

    The Constitution says the President nominates the Senate gives consent/approval

    Republicans are willing to leave one branch of Government unfilled for political purposes

    Throwin a tantrum because conservatives no longer control SCOTUS is not in the Constitution

    Yes indeed, the Republic is at stake and they should hold firm.
