I suppose it must never occur to "Conservatives" that the only obligation SCOTUS has, is to weigh previous rulings, define their comportment with the U.S. Constitution and rule accordingly.
The majority supporting the previous court rulings or rejecting it, is based on the rule of law and its application to its foundation, The U.S. Constitution. SCOTUS is not some low level Justice sitting on a bench somewhere influenced by the everyday political spectrum. They are the pinnacle for deciding the Justice or Injustice of the law of the land held by their interpretation of our U.S. Constitution.
Thankfully, they do understand the U.S. Constitution, having devoted their entire lives to it. Unlike a bunch of people that hang their hats on a few clauses and Amendments and declare their "Constitutional Rights" when they have no understanding of them. Nor do they consider it took a provisional Congress a year and a half to adopt, another four years to ratify, and yet another eight years to put into force our U.S. Constitution. During which time many letters were exchanged, privately and publically by the creators of our Constitution. These exchanges werent just a bunch of word expressing niceties. They were the thought and debates of wording that intended to forever create a free and sovereign Republic.
SCOTUS Rules. The uninformed drool.
I don't know if that was meant for the Angry White Man alone, or some of us other conservatives were included.
I'm not interested in a strict party line either way, what I am interested in is balancing the 14th against the 10th and having them recognize they are not deciding for one nation, but for many.
