Yes, you are absolutely right.
But we live in a time when the Supreme Court is itself ruling against the plain language of the Constitution.
We must attempt to turn public opinion, which in turn must lead to electoral victories, which then must lead to better appointments on the court.
Mike Lee, with this type of legislation is attempting to do two things.
First to slow and retard the slide...and the ability for the left to continue to gain ground while they have these people on the court.
And second to accomplish the types of education necessary to lead to what I spoke of above.
