can you name some SCOTUS decisions that really supported the theory of Limited Government, Enumerated Powers and maximum Liberty for "We The People"?

    Offhand I can't. at least in the last hundred years or so.
    But as was pointed out in another topic, not hearing a case is a decision. Letting a lower court rule stand MAY be the type of decision you were referring too. That would be real hard to pinpoint.

    NO...especially since we got a WISE latino woman who declares herself smarter than any other "judge"...her mission is to support the masses of illegals breaking our laws and wave her magic wand and make them free citizens who the middle class is supposed to finance their trip from rags to riches....disgusting

    Judges start their careers as lawyers trained to believe they are smarter and know more about everything than everybody else. Then they become judges and spend all their time exercising absolute power over everybody in their presence. This does not teach a person the theory of limited government.

    Citizens United, that is true. I was trying to think of something other than 5/4. You could include Heller and McDonald.

    The first in BUSH V GORE was 9-0. But that was nothing more than SAY WHAT to the Florida Supreme Court and allow them a try again. The following 2 decisions were 5/4.

    Not sure why you ask - you tink that the only people who are smart enough to read the constitution are the supreme court judges who are becoming more policaly aligned with every new appointee ?

    Since this is a forum attached to a gun related site perhaps you can start with this report done by scholars, historians, and constitutional experts: 97th Congress
    2d Session COMMITTEE PRINT
    THE RIGHT TO KEEP AND BEAR ARMS
    REPORT
    OF THE SUBCOMMITTEE ON THE CONSTITUTION
    OF THE COMMITTEE ON THE JUDICIARY
    UNITED STATES SENATE NINETY-SEVENTH CONGRESS
    SECOND SESSION
