    I believe in one purpose and one purpose only of the Supreme Court, to interpret the law based on a strict standard of the Constitution. What I am not in favor of is the court overturning a law because I do not like it in this instance and leaving the law alone when I am in favor of it. I am for overturning the law if there is a provision of Obamacare that violates the Constitution, not because I happen not to like Obamacare. The Constitution is the standard, not prevailing political trends.

    That is why our govenment has three branches with specific powers and checks and balances.

    Supposed to be: 1--1--1

    If the zero gets in again: 1----1 ----1

    Just for those who pretend not to understand, each "1" represents one of the three branches, with the last BIG "1" being the zero himself.
