TODAY, ANOTHER BLOW TO DEMOCRACY BY THE US SUPREME COURT; THE COURT HAS ENDED THE PEOPLES’ ‘POWER OF THE BALLOT’

   The headlines on Fox News this morning, read, “The Supreme Court has thrown out lower court rulings that blocked a Texas voter identification law and the state’s political redistricting plans as discriminatory.  The court’s action Thursday was a predictable result of its major ruling two days earlier that effectively ended the federal government’s strict supervision of elections in Texas and other states with a history of discrimination in voting.  The justices ordered lower courts to reconsider their previous rulings in light of Tuesday’s ruling.”

   So today, the Supreme Court has continued its attack on American democracy by declaring that all Americans are equal but some are more equal than others; specifically, all American voters are equal, but American voters who have a driver’s license, are more equal than voters without a driver’s license, and only the more equal voters with a driver’s license, will have the right to vote.

   The US Supreme Court thus has made a mockery of the Fourteenth Amendment, “…nor shall any State, Deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; NOR DENY TO ANY PERSON WITHIN ITS JURISDICTION THE EQUAL PROTECTION OF THE LAWS.”

   The American democratic Republic could not be destroyed by foreign terrorists, the American democratic Republic was ultimately destroyed by the US Supreme Court, with “Bush vs. Gore”, “Zelman vs. Simmons-Harris”, “Citizens United”, “Shelby County vs. Holder, and today, throwing out the suit against Texas requiring identification, such as a driver’s license, to vote in an election..

   The five extremist Neocon Republican US Supreme Court Justices, appear to have a vendetta against democracy in America and have perpetuated their majority in the Court with the Supreme Court’s Bush vs. Gore in the year 2000, and “selecting” President W. Bush to be President, and he appointed two look-alike Neocon Republicans Justices during his term in office, continuing the five Justice anti-democracy majority.  The beginning of the Twenty-First Century marked the end of American democracy, as Americans knew it, with a five Justice, anti-democracy majority, and sitting on the US Supreme Court for life.

     The Supreme Court appears to have the same ideology as that of the John Birch Society, as expressed in the John Birch Society Bluebook, their manifesto: p.124 ” –democracy is merely a deceptive phrase, a weapon of demagoguery, and a perennial fraud.” (Continued in Footnote 25, p. 136.) “Our liberal critics would have you believe that this statement, for an American is practically heresy. This is because these same Liberals have been working so long and so hard to convert our republic into a democracy, and to make the American people believe that it is supposed to be a democracy. Nothing could be further from the truth than that insidiously planted premise. . . . Our founding fathers . . . gave us a republic because they considered it the best of all forms of government. They visibly spurned a democracy as probably the worst of all forms of government.”

     Of course our democracy has not been a pure democracy; democracy exists to a degree and it wasn’t possible in 1787, to be a pure democracy, based on the mode of Colonial communications and travel at the time. 

     However, as technology advanced, we have become more and more democratic; America used to be proud of their democracy.  It is difficult to imagine any American denying our Republic is democratic, today; yet there they are, a majority on the U.S. Supreme Court.

US SUPREME COURT TIMELINE:

Bush vs. Gore, 2000: US Supreme Court disregards Florida votes for Presidency and statutes for recounting votes in the election of Presidential Electors in Florida, providing Bush the Electoral votes needed for his election; the Florida popular votes were never officially counted by law.

Zelman vs. Simmons-Harris, 2002: US Supreme Court declares that providing vouchers paid from taxpayer funding can be issued to pay for students attending schools indoctrinating students in a particular religious, political, or economic belief (Public Schools are required to be democratic and impartial).  It was a move toward eliminating Public Schools and privatizing education in the US.

Citizens United, 2010: US Supreme Court declares that bipartisan statues by Congress, limiting political contributions by a corporate entity is unconstitutional because it denies “Freedom of Speech” to corporate entities (declaring a corporation is a “person”); corporations responded by spending billions of dollars on election contributions in 2010 and 2012.  Technically, wealth can now buy elections, and did in 2010 and 2012.

Shelby County vs. Holder, 2013: US Supreme Court declared Voter Rights Statute enacted by Congress is outdated and unconstitutional and States guilty of voter suppression no longer need to have voting laws approved by the Justice Department.  On June 27, 2013, the US Supreme Court remanded to lower courts, all decision made based on the Voter Rights Act, and lower courts are now to rule based on the Shelby Decision.
