“Please understand, a Supreme Court decision is not ‘the law of the land,’ Indeed, it is not a ‘law’ at all. Only legislatures can make laws. A Supreme Court decision is a rule that is binding only on the parties involved in the case; and it is enforceable only on that limited group if the executive and legislative branches choose to enforce it.” (Congressman Lawrence Patton McDonald, We Hold These Truths, 1976.)
