    That would only get you recruited into the Scots Guards!

    Are you rooting legislation from the bench?

    No.
    I see a common mistaken inference in all discussions.
    When an observation is made, people often presume
    that to speak of it is to approve of it.

    Are you saying you wouldn't approve of the SCOTUS ruling that the draft runs afoul of the prohibition on involuntary servitude?

    I addressed the Supremes making new law.
    That's not their job, but it happens.
    I'd approve of ruling the draft is unconstitutional.
    This is within their power.

    No name designated at this time.
    Only if, and that is a humongous if, it is brought before any court

    If you don't like courts setting precedent, you always have the option not to live in a country with a Common Law system.

    I like courts honoring the Constitution.
    You don't?

    Courts shouldn't "honor" a law, but read and interpret it.
    Unthinking veneration is a poor method for applying old rule books to new situations, in my opinion.

    Duh.
    So civil liberties granted by the Constitution are just
    obsolete old rules to you? I'm not surprised.
    Here, we place limits on governmental power over us.

    It's remarkable how much of this response consists of reading statements into my posts that aren't there.
    Are you angling for a job at the USSC?

    If one doesn't enjoy the game,
    one ought not initiate play.
