    Do Americans have a right/obligation to question the rulings of the Supreme Court, especially with regard to the Constitution of the United States and it's amendments?

    It is not however an obligation, freedom of expression must extend to keeping your yap shut.
    Just so-thank you for supplying that essential caveat, sir.

    The obligation would be a moral one, perhaps, not a legal one.

    yes one has the right to question.....However that doesn't mean that just because one disagrees with a decision that the ruling is incorrect.

    it’s an election with no Democrats, in one of the whitest states in the union, where rich candidates pay $35 for your votes. Or, as Republicans call it, their vision for the future.

    Amen Of course, the government has every right to ignore them...and we have every right to kick them out.

    And I can't wait to show my MPs what I think of them next summer...

    If you do not question them, then the society would become static.

    Think for yourself and question authority.

    Every time the Supreme Court makes a decision that fits your beliefs, than they are doing their job. When they make a decision that disagrees with your beliefs then there activist judges.
