#1 But what about asset forfeiture that does not involve a criminal charge and thus cannot be considered a fine?
"Civil asset forfeiture proceedings charge the property itself with involvement in a crime. This means that police can seize your car, home, money, or valuables without ever having to charge you with a crime." (Heritage Foundation)

#2 "For good reason, the protection against excessive fines has been a constant shield throughout Anglo-American history," wrote Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg in the opinion.

She sort of skips over that rationale when it comes to the right of Christians to practice their religion free from government interference. You know that First Amendment thingy.

#3 Well, it is a start to roll back the government over reach that has been constant since FDR.

#4 Another wonderful rupture of the law that the War on Drugs has brought us. Along with Mexico being a failed state.

But victory is right around the corner! Surely no change is needed! The drug laws are working great!
