"Had the framers of those amendments intended them to be limitations on the power of the state governments they would have imitated the framers of the original Constitution, and expressed that intention."
John Marshall, Barron v. Baltimore, 1833

Generalized assertions that Marshall was wrong carry little weight. I don't know what "notable faction" of dissenters is referred to. Who were they, what did they write, where can it be found? I am referring to the specific question of the applicability of the Bill of Rights of 1791 to the state governments.

Incorporation is a mess. Incorporation is a mess. Incorporation is a mess. Multiply that by 1000 and you'll figure out what I think about it.
