Excellent!

"In short, what we have here is not “evolving standards of decency,” but devolving standards of judicial dishonesty."

Good speech, one question though, and just a minor point;

The government of the United States is the second in history to be based on the principle of popular sovereignty

I seem to recall that there were a number of classical Greek states (and Rome) with democratic governments, so could you elaborate on what you mean with this point?

Miss Felicity, the Congressman has smote yet another home run.

Wish I'd been there.

We are now functionally without a Constitution.

Shocking as that statement might be, it is unfortunately true.

Our entire legal and political establishment is now pretending that the Fifth Amendment, the heart of the Bill of Rights, the clause that is supposed to enforce the God-given and inalienable right to life, isn't even there.

When the government can issue death warrants against innocent Americans, and carry them out by cruel and unusual means, the very heart of the rule of law has been cut out.

And those who stood by allowing it to occur, when they had the power to stop it, also have blood on their hands.

Why should we be surprised, though. For over thirty years now we have allowed them to kill over 4000 babes in the womb per day. The horror we just witnessed in Pinellas Park Florida was just the next step.

Who will they declare not to be a person next?

Every nominee for the Court should be asked just two questions: “What is the job description of a judge?” If the nominee gets that answer right, the next question is: “How does your career demonstrate that you live by that description?”

Beautiful in it's simplicity.

Outlaws who wear masks and carry guns are a danger to us, one at a time. But outlaws who wear black robes and carry gavels are dangerous to all of us at once.

The danger is not just to specific laws, like the juvenile death penalty ones in 19 states. It is to ALL laws, in all states and in the federal government.

What an absolutely outstanding speech. Thank you.

Atta boy, Congersman Billybob!! (Embarassing myself by applauding loudly!)

This is what the Constitution is all about and this is what America is all about.

I can't be there for the march, so step of a couple of paces for me, will you?

Thank you for that speech!

From the Gospel according to Abe, in The Gettysburg Address:

“... this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom -- and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.”

It is dismaying how many supposedly conservative people quote Abe Lincoln. This is a fellow who destroyed the South, trampled states rights, instituted a draft and expanded government.

Let's heretofore vow to restrict our presidential quotations to Washington, Reagan and GW Bush

Mind-boggling...Since the Supreme court has no authority to change the Constitution, does that make this law null and void??

Is there any recourse?? How does one sue the Supreme Court???

No outrage in Congress??

Excellent speech sir. Our Constitution is a very simple document written by very learned and complex men. It means exactly what it says and has the amendment mechanism to change it when it rarely needs it. We must return to the rule of law by legislature and a judiciary that enforces The Constitution as written and not create law from whole cloth. That piece of paper is what protects and has made this great nation. If the judiciary is allowed to destroy that document, we will lose our nation and rights and freedoms. The next three judges appointed to that court will determine the direction of our nation or rule over its demise.

You speech makes these points very eloquently.

My breaking point was the decision in McConnell v. FEC in 2003. That was the Campaign Finance “Reform” case. Contrary to the First Amendment, five Justices of the Court decided that Congress could tell American citizens to sit down and shut up in their politics, in the months before federal elections.
I hear so much that the Court has been suppressing majority rule, the people's will. But what threw you over the edge, Mr. Congressman, was a decision that stood with the people's representatives.

We're either for judicial review, or we're against it. If against it, then why do we not also so painfully writhe when it goes our way? Just because we won? How lame.

There is no consistency in today's anti-court hysteria except this: get our kind of judges. I just wish folks would stick to that sole objective.
