    What do YOU think is the purpose of the Supreme Court?

    And has the Supreme Court met with your idea ? Be specific, and apply it to their decisions.
    Like the definition of pornography, we all think that there is a clear answer, but people have vastly varied opinions on both these subjects.

    Please don't discuss pornography, unless it involves the SC decisions.

    I believe the SC was originally formed to be the "final say" over whether a law was within the spirit of the constitution or not.
    Historically people accepted the decision of the high court.
    Today the SC is nothing more than a political football where if they make a decision that is opposed by one side an effort is mounted to reverse the decision at a later date when there is a more favorable bench count. Essentially there is no "final say" or decision!
    People just bide their time waiting for an opportunity to overturn past decisions they disagree with.
    In the NFL once the referee has reviewed the instant replay camera and makes a call {it is accepted} /stands; and the game moves on.
    If the people refuse to accept Supreme Court decisions as being "final" then it becomes nothing more than another political branch waiting for one side to get the "right makeup" of judges to have their way. If we don't (accept) the rule of law the SC is powerless.

      Unfortunately, life sn be played like a football game, As there are magnitudes of consequences from a bad SC decision.
      If 44.44% of SC justices (4of9) think a law is not constitutional, we should err on side of caution & declare it unconstitutio

      Every SC decision is a "bad decision" in someone's eyes!
      The fact that you have two sides of an issue guarantees one side is never going to be "happy" with a decision.
      Therefore it's always going to be a "bad decision".
      Unless one agrees!

      The more jurists that agree on a decision the better is the decision.5-4 decisions are usually bad. The true test of a decision is does it resolve the issues before the court.

    It is supposed to determine which laws are Constitutional and what the meaning of the law is. The controversy began when it started fabricating new rights and trying to legislate from the bench.
