Guys, one argument that I haven't seen here is this. Courts, at all levels, when the law is somehow not clear, are always looking for original intent. Original intent is often looked for in transcripts of testimony, from when a law was being drafted. Jefferson, having the status of a minor diety to some scholars, was clearly expressing original intent.
On a constitutional scale, Supreme Court candidates are often judged as to whether they are strict constructionists.
Yeah, I know, the world changes, and the law needs to change with it. But we are dealing with people here who are in denial of change. It might be said that if someone is truly in denial, they cannot be said to be hypocrites. And what is worse, is that to the believer, denial is indistinguishable from Faith.
Hey, I'm still in denial about no longer being 17, but I try not to take myself too seroiusly.
