Despite Kennedy’s conservative background, the justice is the crucial swing vote on the bench, tending to side with liberal colleagues on issues of gay rights and abortion rights, as well as some cases involving race and the death penalty. Kennedy has written the court’s major gay-rights decisions, including the 2016 ruling that declared same-sex marriage a constitutional right nationwide.

But rumors of Kennedy’s retirement have been discussed since last year, prompting even the White House to release a list of potential nominees.

And somewhere I was told Justice is blind. Must have been one of the many myths propagated in public schools.

Gay marriage is constitutional ? Did the Founding Fathers come to
that conclusion as they sat around the table fondling each others
penis ? Sounds more like something the Court members would do.

“The Constitution is not an instrument for the government to restrain the people, it is an instrument for the people to restrain the government - lest it come to dominate our lives and interests.”
― Patrick Henry

"The [U.S.] Constitution is a limitation on the government, not on private 
individuals ... it does not prescribe the conduct of private individuals, 
only the conduct of the government ... it is not a charter for government 
power, but a charter of the citizen's protection against the 
government." --Ayn Rand
