The recent “decisions” of the Supreme Court indicate a drastic detour around the Constitution. Laws are written with specific language, not vague inuendos. When activist courts take those words and interject bias, bigotry, political correctness or personal and anecdotal experience into their judgement, they are no longer further defining the intended specificity. They are modifying or completely changing the intent and purpose for the chosen words of law. They are no longer interpreting the law, they are writing new law!
Congress is the branch of government charged with making law. The executive branch long ago stripped congress of their authority through the use of executive orders and giving undue jurisdiction to unelected secretaries and department heads. Now the judicial branch has removed what was left of congress’s co-equal power. Constitution be damned!
The two major decisions of the past week, Obamacare and Gay marriage, do not coincide with sanity or reason. Both are riddled with anti-American consequences. Both decisions take freedom and responsibility of choice from “We the People” and deliver them to the governing elite. The problems created by these decisions and the mitigation or adjudication of them can only further erode our republic.
The arguments presented did not justify or support objectivity and were not based in rationality. The decisions had to have been coerced.
These decisions lend themselves to suspected foul dealings among the players of government or even beyond. Undue influence is certainly not to be ruled out. That influence might be in the form of carrot or stick. It might be bribery or blackmail. In any case, sound reason did not prevail at the end of this judicial session and it was beyond “Git ‘er done” so we can go home and play with the grand-kids.
