Re: Re: What is justice?

If Mr. Roth would invest more time to study the Constitution, I believe that everthing from Martin Luthers King's economic equality to basic human rights are protected within the bill of rights  even when  vested in the people by state constitution as states rights.

Read the 9th and 10th amendments we are three jurisdictions federal limited rights and powers, states limited rights and powers and the rights and powers of the people. We are not subjects of the government.  As the 5th amendment states nor deprived of life, liberty or property, without due process.  You can never lose your rights and powers unless as part of the penalty for the conviction of a crime against another.

An important fact that even justice Briar left out is that our nation is a republic along with the states that are guaranteed the right to the republican form of government by the US Constitution. Law rules not the president, congress or legislatures or governors. People as vested with supreme power, they merely represent.

The founders showed wisdom beyond what this society chooses to see and there are none so blind as those that will not see.
