The Supreme Court Sucks
Why is the U.S. Supreme Court playing politics with the lives of American citizens? Why did the Supreme Court rule that the obviously illegal Obamacare and the obviously illegal gay marriage are legal?
Let's look at the facts. Obamacare forces American citizens to BUY something - health insurance. The federal government does not have the power - or the right - to force citizens to buy anything. Yet the Supreme Court decided to rule it a "tax", in order to make Obamacare legal, because the government has the right and the power to levy taxes. How is forcing someone to buy health insurance a "tax"? How is punishing them with a monetary fine if they don't buy it, a "tax"?
As for marriage, for thousands of years marriage has been legally defined as the union of a man and a woman. Now, marriage has suddenly been legally redefined by the highest court in the land as seemingly "anything goes". And, no I am not against gays. I don't care what consenting adults do in the privacy of their own home. I do care what consenting adults do in the privacy of MY home.
Both of these Supreme Court decisions, Obamacare and Same Sex Marriage, are purely political, reflecting the liberal beliefs and desires of very liberal Americans, not the beliefs and desires of the majority of the American public, not the beliefs and desires of we, the people.
Five out of the nine Supreme Court Justices are politically liberal and seemingly, regardless of the law, or the will of the people, have based these two landmark rulings on their political liberalism. Supreme Court rulings should be about the LAW, not politics. The Supreme Court's job is not to reinterpret laws in order to remake America into a ultra-liberal society. Yet that is exactly what they are doing. For that reason, the U.S. Supreme Court today is a complete, and dangerous, disappointment, redefining America along liberal political lines and putting liberal politics above the law. Shame on them! And, no we can't fire them, they are government workers, and appointed for life.
Liberals, including the U.S. Supreme Court, apparently have made the U.S. Constitution and the Law only a guideline, to be followed when it suits them and not followed when it doesn't suit them. That's not America, that's not what our founders had in mind when they created our "sacred" founding documents.
And, no, I am not an old, white Republican. I am an old, white Independent.
