I never said that Federal funds are used to fund abortions (although they have been in the past, and would have been again under Obamacare). - I was merely making an argument of extremes. I apologize for the incorrect assumption of intelligence on your part. I see that you used liberal ploy #1; make up a "fact".
"Making up rights"...you mean like establishing that corporations have the same rights as individual citizens?" - What part of "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech,
" don't you get? They did not make up a right, they restored the right of any group, be it a political party, a chess club or a corporation, to voice their beliefs. Liberal ploy #2, when hoisted on your own judicial petard, scream bloody murder about judicial acitivism. Liberal ploy #3, attack the "evil corporations" - damn them for providing jobs and investment opportunity that keep people off of the public dole!
"Or determining that states don't have the power to discriminate based on race?? Or that women, gays and minorities should have the same equal rights as men, marrieds or whites, respectively???" - Um, no, that is not judicial activism, that is a court correctly applying the protection of the first clause of the 14th ammendment.1. All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside. No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.
Liberal ploy #4, try to jusify liberal
judicial activism because liberals
know what is best for us and what to deem fair
. Of course liberals never stop to think "what if someday, five judges deem crucifying Christians, or gassing Jews is fair?
Not that things like that have ever happened. (Just in case you don't get it, this is the extreme example scenario again.)
You see the road to hell is paved with good intentions. The founding fathers knew this, and so the Constitution was written to protect the minority from the tyanny of the majority - even when they have the best of intentions. That is something iggyots like you have never, and will never, understand.
