32. the ruling was based on political expression

The court ruled that the suit represented a form of political expression and therefore was constitutionally protected. They then site another case involving divorce law with no constitutional issue. Your argument assumes that all legal suits must be successful. The birthers do have the right to sue, and they have done so. They also have had their cases thrown out for lack of merit.

If we have no right to sue, why is anyone allowed to wage a lawsuit? Why don't you care that guns are specially protected under the law? Why don't you care about free speech restrictions on doctors? What course in law school told you that guns were more important than every other right? Where does the constitution privilege the right to profit from murder above all else?
