It is this act alone that now casts away the veil and exposes the tyranny of centralized power that concerned our Founders. If a Supreme Court justice can rule based upon public pressure and concern about appearances, then all semblance of constitutional governance is gone and the remedy, as described by Thomas Jefferson and others is for the states to just say NO to the federal government.....
