Raich featured the Bush Justice dept--Ashcroft and then Gonzalez, so they are partially at fault.
It's Scalia's fault!
Now you're just being absurd. First, I didn't say it was Scalia's fault. I didn't say he screwed America. I said he helped screw America. And he did. Facts are facts, even if you don't like them.
Conservatives are always at fault. Even when liberals do it.
Again, you're just being silly. Liberals are beyond hope. We don't look to them to further the cause of liberty. We don't look to them to reign in federal power. We don't look to them to aid us in keeping the fed gov within its intended limits. It's not even worth discussing.
But we DO look to conservative politicians, and conservative justices. We expect them to do it, and if they don't, we target them for unemployment.
If you cannot trust Scalia on an issue as important as this, then what hope is there? You have to appreciate what the commerce clause, as interpreted by the court, has done to the notion of limited federal power. And you have to appreciate how damaging it is to have that jurisprudence affirmed AGAIN. And yes, Scalia joined the liberals on this question. So cry your political tears all you want. The facts are what they are.
yes...its called being absurd to highlight absurdity. You made Scalia the point of your essay, you knocked him in the headline for one reason: to get people to read what you wrote. There is a name for those who do that.
So I did read your post. And now I've finished with it.
