I get your point, Ted, but let's not hyperventilate. NO ONE can take away your God-given, inalienable rights. You must either surrender them and submit to your own slavery, or kill the tyrants who try to put you in bondage.

Long story short, "during good Behavior" does not mean "till confession to high treason in open court" (though if we even granted that as a basis for removal we would have a vacant Supreme Court).

Well, let's see. Since I already do not surrender or submit (as evidenced by my long standing participation in The Armed Civil Disobedience of Non-Compliance since 1994), then I guess that leaves option 2.

I don't believe I'll have any problem exercising that option.

Ted belongs on the SC. If I can't have him as President, then I can think of no better place for him.

I hear what Cruz is saying, and this has come about because we have a (very) politicized SCOTUS. But there is an issue re the SCOTUS which needs airing here.

The case "Marbury v Madison" decided by the Supreme court in 1803, is the case that is widely referred to by legal scholars, and many others, as the case that set the precedent for the SCOTUS being the FINAL ARBITER of the Constitution. This was a victory for the SCOTUS, giving them the ultimate power to decide ANY question of law/Constitution and was widely bragged about, and willingly grabbed by Chief Justice Marshall and many of the other Supremes of the time. Ever since then we have lived with the idea that whatever the SCOTUS decides is the last word on the constitutionality of whatever question was raised.

Thomas Jefferson took great offense at such an idea, saying this as to why he felt that way:

......"You seem to consider the judges as the ultimate arbiters of all constitutional questions; a very dangerous doctrine indeed, and one which would place us under the despotism of an oligarchy. Our judges are as honest as other men, and not more so. They have, with others, the same passions for party, for power, and the privilege of their corps.... Their power [is] the more dangerous as they are in office for life, and not responsible, as the other functionaries are, to the elective control. The Constitution has erected no such single tribunal, knowing that to whatever hands confided, with the corruptions of time and party, its members would become despots. It has more wisely made all the departments co-equal and co-sovereign within themselves"......

And what Jefferson feared has more than come true. The last two decisions on parts of Obamacare, especially the last one, "King v Burwell" where the high priests ruled that the law does NOT mean what it very clearly says.

That decision was enough to convince me that the SCOTUS is corrupted beyond redemption!

Folks, make no mistake about it, the "final arbiter" of questions about what the Constitution really means is..........US......WE THE PEOPLE!

The power mad in DC (and other places) trying to take inalienable rights away from American citizens can only succeed if we voluntarily give ourselves into slavery! To get any of mine they will have to pry them from my cold dead fingers, after I take as many of them with me as possible.

Give up trying to deal with voting! We have almost gotten to the point where the guy with the cartridge box is the only one who still gets to express HIS opinion.

There is no doubt in my mind now that that is exactly where this is going!

"Secondly, I believe we should expand legal immigration, reduce the barriers, reduce the waiting periods and I've introduced two amendments to significantly expand legal immigration, to double the caps on legal immigration from 675,000 to 1.3 million and to increase temporary high skilled workers by 500%." - U. S. Senator Ted Cruz

The is a very apparent lack of common sense and courage these days displayed not only daily by the POS politicians, but in general by Americans...I hope an pray one day it wioll turn around, but a part of me doesn't want to see it happen. Why? Because American do NOT know what Freedom and Liberty is, much less the full consuming desire to keep it much less the self sacrifice and determination to make sure it is never again threatened..American are conent too much in their standard of living to do anything that will pull them away from it, so in essence, util it becomes to painfull individually to do anything about it, they wont, will not defend it except in words and token gestures...hate me for that reality, so what...truth sucks most times.

The Founding Fathers were the example, there a virtually NONE in America of that caliber of character and devotion to Freedom and Liberty.
