    Interesting question - I don't know if they do under the Constitution. They would under the Articles.

    I can't imagine anyone who claims to view our Constitution as the supreme law of the land seeing this as anything other than an assault on liberty.

    Of course, a majority of our federal judges wouldn't know liberty if it bit them on their left-leaning backsides...(yes, that includes "D" and "R" judges)
