Because Court opinions are stare decisis.

"Stare decisis" is the position of the judicial supremacist. You're showing yourself to be one.

Judicial supremacists begin their arguments from Marbury v Madison, in which Justice Marshall argued for the Court's right and obligation to interpret the Constitution and rule accordingly. Seemingly few judicial supremacists have ever actually read the ruling and understood the plain sense of his words. In it he not only pointed out the Court's need to interpret the Constitution, but the need for the officers of the other branches to do the same.

Again, wrong. Look at my posting history. I think it's judicial laziness at its worst. All the way back to Marbury V Madison which, IMO, was wrongly decided and lies at the heart of a lot of the out of control asshattery we see in Congress today.

Further, judges are not above Art 6 Para 2. "Judges in every State shall be bound thereby". Which is where an Amendment is more effective than trying to argue a definition.
