I have thought, for a while now, that they should be made to live with the consequences of their decisions. Remember Kelo, well, what if we had all the local county guys seize all the Justices's private property under made up numbers (projections) that this would increase levied tax by some amount. The suspension of Habeus Corpus and
indefinite detention [without charges] is legitimate? Well lock the justices up in barren rooms with only food and water and a private tasked to retrieve for them writing utensils and law books. — then see how long it takes them to reverse their decisions.
Seriously, some of the problems we face can be eradicated quickly by making the
elite ruling class live by the rules they impose.
By Tenth Amendment standards, Kelo was correctly decided, even though the New London assertion of an eminent domain taking was itself an abomination. The result was that some states instituted MORE stringent property rights protections than the Fifth Amendment offers, while others continue on the corrupt path to ruin. The result of the ruling is that Natural Law will assure the outcome, which is a wise course in most instances of offering the temptation to centralize enforcement powers.

It's analogous to knowing where the police and bureaucrats keep their houses.

No argument there.
