Too many Americans have forgotten how the 3 branches of government work. Maybe they never learned?

We all have opinions of what we think should be “the way”, but the idea of the Supreme Court is to ideally rise above feelings and opinion and adjudicate strictly considering “is the thing we’re looking at constitutional, rooted in, or somehow spoken of in or by the Constitution?”.

If something is, or is not, Constitutional, if you really think about it, shouldn’t every decision that comes out of the Supreme Court be 9–0?

If the 9 Justices are evaluating a case to determine if it is constitutional, then politics aside, it should be fairly straightforward to pit a case against the Constitution and make a fairly quick and easy determination.

In every Supreme Court decision there are millions of American who think the Court got it right, while millions of others who think the court got it wrong. Very often that is based on feelings and not rooted in “was the thing constitutional or not

Four good examples of this are the recent rulings on Student Loan Forgiveness, Affirmative Action as a part of college acceptance, Religious Freedom, and Roe vs. Wade.

Whether you agree with the high court or not, look at it for a moment as it relates to the Constitution.
