If you could ask Supreme Court Justice John Roberts a question, what would it be?? UPDATED: Thanks but ENOUGH already!

Hello fellow dper's,
I am attending a lecture tomorrow given by Justice John Roberts, if I can get to a microphone to ask him about Barack Obama's eligibility and why it has not been brought before the court for a hearing and have an opportunity to ask any other questions, what would you like me to ask?? I will have a friend with me to record on tape and hopefully will be able to get it up on youtube for you all. Hope to hear some feedback from you guys! (Oh, and if you could list in order of importance, that would be great!)

UPDATE: Thanks for all your wonderful questions! I really wish I could ask them all for you -- so many options, so little time for me to choose!

in reference to last summers DC Gun Ban...

WTF does "Shall NOT Be INFRANGED" mean... The ruling last summer opened the door for all sorts of "infrindgements".

END GAME in theory

I would ask him this: If I find myself pulling down on a U.S. military person because my life & my vision of what AMERICA is & stands for & all that I was taught, is being taken down by my elected & self appointed leaders & designated protectors, who are about to take me out should I pull the trigger..Would I then be a PATRIOT or CRIMINAL ????ALSO : Whose arsenal should be curbed the most ,the individuals or the Federal Gov't...
It seems to me that the FEDS are using their arsenal a lot more than I am useing mine...After all I actually own both...

we the people have tolerated

we the people have tolerated this unconstitutional war. what would you say if you were that soldier? you want to be killed by someone Coursework Help you trained? i agree our guys need to be out of there NOW. i'm guessing when you're thrown into a war, you spend less time contemplating the constitutional aspects of it and worry more about getting your ass home in one piece. you can end up just as dead even if you disagree with it.

Ask Roberts

Why does SC consistently rule in favor of allowing the increase of Federal power?

Hasn't the doctrine of "implied" executive powers allowed the expansion of Federal power and shouldn't the court reverse its prior rulings that allowed powers beyond the 16 Explicit Powers in the Constitution?

Ask him about Art. I, Sec. 8, Cl. 2

In addition to my prior comment about the Ninth Amendment, I would also like to know Chief Justice Roberts' opinion about Congress' power to "borrow money on the credit of the United States." Given that this country is not 12T in debt, will the Court ever step in and say that Congress has borrowed too much money?

While I understand that the Supreme Court gives great deference to Congress with regards to its taxing and spending power, there hasn't been much case law interpreting the constitutionality of excessive borrowing and debt. It would be interesting if at some point down the road, someone could raise a facial challenge to this borrowing and spending spree by Congress. However, I wonder how one would get past the standing requirements: damage through inflation?

Feel free to comment.

Ask him about the Ninth Amendment

As a second-year law student who absolutely loves Constitutional Law, I am curious if Chief Justice Roberts has considered a SCOTUS interpretation of the Ninth Amendment which reads:

"The enumeration in the Constitution, of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people."

How is this Amendment interpreted? Does it mean that because of the Bill of Rights enumerates our rights that Congress can simply overlook other rights such as privacy, freedom of contract, etc.? While there is ample precedent supporting issues such as these under other parts of our Constitution, I am curious if the Court has considered reviewing any case argued under the Ninth Amendment.

well as it is said.."ask and you shall receive..."

now ..comes the fun part...

sorting the questions...

HAVE FUN ;)

Chief Justice

Mr Chief Justice,

Would you feel comfortable pulling the trigger at the direct order of President Obama, when he continues to fight in courts across the land the release of a single document that would prove, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that he is qualified under the US Constitution to issue that order?

And how would you feel, after having killed someone in the line of duty, that he was not constitutionally eligible to give you that order?

I'd ask his opinion of Kelo vs. New London.

If the people do not possess property rights, they possess no rights.

Yes. That's a good one. Ask how 5 members of

the court acquired the constitutional authority to amend the 5th Amendment's "public use" wording to "public purpose".

While Kelo was one horrible decision, it is comforting to know that states have amended their constitutions to prevent legislative bodies from ever taking private property for private use.

I would ask, "So who's your favorite Beatle?"

How.....???

How can you hold the title of Justice..swear an oath to up hold the Constitution..and not lift a finger when government abuses the very Constitution you all swore an oath to uphold?

Freedom is another way to God...A corrupt government is a straight way to hell.

some of you people should be reporters. Unlike the wimps we now have in the media, you know how to ask the tough questions.

Ask him this???

When in your life, did you realize it would be a wonderful career choice to help usurp the Constitution and sell the American people down the river?

Ask him what he knows about

If so, what are we paying you for?

There is no "right" to say it here.

Ha...

...you want bigotry and racism? Read the Talmud, considered the holiest text above even beyond the Torah with Orthodox Jews...read that and see how they perceive you. Then, tie that perception with Jewish positions of power in our society vs. any non-Jew. Been like that throughout all of history, and is the reason they've been kicked out of something like 87 countries.

It's the "they"

that is troubling. You won't say all "Jews" (however you define this group) share this perception. Though I'm a Christian and a German I don't share all cracked up views brought forward by authorities and 'leaders' in the name of these groups.

Ask how LOWER COURTS

Ask how LOWER COURTS can convict individuals owing an "income tax" without complying with the many Supreme Court decisions showing the unconstitutionality of many facets of the IRS and the tax codes it illegally enforces?

And how can the IRS have prosecuted individuals who have chosen not to "voluntarily comply" if the tax code states that compliance is indeed "voluntary"?

And How Can They Persecute Lawyers

Who represent taxpayers in criminal tax cases? I have been "sanctioned" twice for representing tax protestors, including in the Irwin Schiff case, which was a travesty of justice.

Keep in mind . . .

that he's not going to answer any specific questions due to the code of judicial conduct. If you want to ask him something he might not evade, keep it philosophical. For instance: "Why are you so important, and why should you be?" or "What are your thoughts on the comparative merits of a common-law system like we have in the federal courts versus a civil law jurisdiction like the Louisiana state court (or in Japan). Isn't the power to set common law a form of legislative power?"

Where have you guys been?

While our constitution, and our country has gone to hell? And when do you plan to blow your brains out.?
