This ruling, coupled with a prior ruling that said the federal government had the right to force Americans to purchase health insurance – shows that the Court’s liberal bloc “is prepared to do whatever it takes to uphold and assist its favorites.”

  1. Fantastic post over at Ace in Weird Dave’s “Fundamental Truths” Saturday series, this one about what happens when the “Rule of Law” concept is usurped by arbitrary judicial reinterpretation. Pull quote:

    “So where does this leave us? It leaves us as subjects to an oligarchy. No longer are we citizens giving our consent to be governed in a codified, orderly process. The USA as constituted is dead. Instead of ruling on the constitutionality of laws passed by Congress and signed by the President, the SCOTUS is now writing laws. All on its own, with no oversight or debate.”
