Yeah. It was a real bummer when slavery was done away with.
Was actually done away with the right way...by Constitutional Amendment - not by the spontaneous ruling/whim of the courts. Slavery was a wrong, but it was Constitutional - so what's your point?

My point is that you claim the following: "Upholding laws that existed from the start of the country should have been a no-brainer. Like the laws or not, they were supported by the Founders and the original 13 states." So are all the laws enacted with the founding of the United States government in 1788 (or 1790, if you want to wait until the last of the original 13 states ratified the Constitution) supposed to be in force today--like them or not? By the way, do you have any idea when the law that the Supreme Court just found unconstitutional was enacted?
