Can someone (preferably a Gingrich-ite) explain how Newt would decide which decisions would put which judges in jail?
Newtie says that he will put judges in jail if they rule on issues that he disagrees with. OK, that’s unconstitutional and a step towards dictatorship, fine. But let’s follow the idea through.
How will Newt decide which supreme court (and appeals court) rulings to ignore? On what basis (i.e. charge) will the judges be held? If the decisions are treasonous, as Newt implies, why not simply put the judges to death, since the penalty for treason is capital.
What happens if there is new president elected who disagrees with Newt? Will a new set of judges be jailed? What happens to the old ones already in jail?
Newt Gingrich is a dangerous maniac for suggesting these things.
