Can anyone on this board tell me with a straight face that they are the least bit surprised by this judicial overreach?
If so, I have a bridge or two I’d like to sell you.
I agree...this really should not surprise anyone on FR...
Just what I was thinking.
Can anyone point to more than a scant couple of crucial ideological Constitutional/Conservative battles won during the last 25 years? IF that?
Let's face it; The Fix has been in. Corruption, Blackmail, Extortion, and Evil in High Places rule the Day. Get yourselves right with God and prepare to defend yourselves. All America is now The Alamo.
I don't think it's judicial over-reach. It is more like the court punting back to the states on hard cases; which has been the trend since Roberts took over. If you look at many of the rulings, even obamacare, many of the decisions, both positive and negative in the eyes of conservatives, always seem to be directed back to the state level for a fresh journey to the SC, or for the states to fix.
This whole chain of events is leading to a showdown on the 10th Amendment. I think this will come to a head sometime in 2014, as the Feds start hammering states that have passed nullification laws against obamacare. The obamacare showdown will come before one on the 2nd Amendment, simply because there is more wide spread revolt amongst the states on the matter.
As far as the case on Prop 8, as Robert's himself said, "Elections have consequences". Maybe as the queers get married in droves in CA the vast majority of Californians that continually elect hard core socialists will get a clue. THEY DO NOT CARE ABOUT THEM OR THEIR MORALS AND WISHES.
