SCOTUS nominee Barrett says she is a "literalist", meaning she takes the Constitution literally. Since there is no mention of the USAF ...?

... in the Constitution, will she declare it unconstitutional?

NOTE: It specifically mentions an Army and Navy, but no Air Force, and definitely no "Space Force".

    Well, then,  since she is a literalist, then she should get her stupid a**  back to the kitchen , pregnant and barefoot,  since the Constitution didn't even allow women the vote, much less the chance to become Judges, or sit on the Supreme Court. 

    I guess that means she also considers blacks, 3/5ths of a person for property tax purposes.

    You might want to actually read the Constitution.

    There are at least 2 mentions of the federal government having to provide for common defense.  It makes no mention of how that is to be done.

    The Marines also aren't mentioned.  They pre-dated the Constitution.  By your logic, the USMC should have been disbanded when the Constitution was ratified.  So, we can have Marines but not an Air Force or Space Force (or even the Coast Guard)?

    You might also care to look at the 'necessary and proper clause.'

    Your logic is that "anything" not mentioned in the Constitution is illegal.  That is not Barrett's stance nor is that the stance of anyone with more than two brain cells rubbing together.
