U.S. SUPREME COURT TURNS THE TABLES ON OBAMACARE AND GAY MARRIAGE; THE EXTREMIST NEOCON MAJORITY HAVN’T CHANGED THEIR MIND, THEY ARE JUST TRYING TO SAVE THE COURT’S ASS FROM THE PEOPLE!

Today, I am reading, “Supreme Court Justices Stop Playing Nice” by Josh Gerstein. http://www.politico.com/story/2015/06/supreme-court-justices-antonin-scalia-samuel-alito-119486.html

Basically, it is about Chief Justice Roberts’ and Justice Kennedy’s apparent disagreement with the old extremist Right Wing Neocon Republican majority on the issues of Obamacare and Gay Marriage.

Unfortunately, this article does not mention the politicization of the U.S. Supreme Court, starting with President Lyndon Johnson and including all Presidents since. Presidents used to always carefully select Justices that were neither obviously right nor left, and often after the Justice’s lifetime appointment, they became more or less left of right or left than the President who appointed them believed.

After Presidents Johnson’s attempted appointment of one of his own cronies (because he thought he could), he was chastised by his own party. All appointments since have more or less been purely political with some infighting in the Senate. There have been some terrible appointments.

The U.S. Supreme Court itself became obviously political when it quite brazenly anointed W. Bush to be President in 2000, in the purely political Bush vs. Gore Decision in spite of the election to the contrary; Justice Stevens in dissent to Bush vs. Gore, laid it on the line: “One thing, however, is certain. Although we may never know with complete certainty the identity of the winner of this year’s Presidential election, the identity of the loser is perfectly clear. It is the Nation’s confidence in the judge as an impartial guardian of the rule of law.”

There was absolutely no Constitutional basis for the Bush vs. Gore decision and no Fourteenth Amendment right of Bush to the Presidency; it was the worse decision in U.S. History.

Many people were surprised when the Americans did not start an American revolution over Bush vs. Gore; actually, 911 occurred and seemingly saved ‘President’ W. Bush because it forced the distraught voters to support their questionable ‘President‘ or the terrorist bin Laden.

Then after President W. Bush made two more terrible extremist Neocon Republican appointments (Scalia as Justice and Roberts as Chief Justice), the Court became obviously brazen, biased, and glorified in their series of terrible decision such as despised Citizens United decision.

ROBERTS SUPREME COURT
U.S. SUPREME COURT CHIEF JUSTICE ROBERTS

As often happens, Justices change after appointment. When Obamacare came before the Courts, Chief Justice Roberts became concerned about ‘his’ Court itself surviving, if it destroyed Obamacare, how would the People react.

So, his decision to approve of Obamacare was more a move to save the Supreme Court, than judicial approval of Obamacare. To note: the People had elected Obama because he promised Obamacare; for the Court to throw Obamacare out would get the People very, very riled up. It appeared to be suicidal for the Court to kill Obamacare!

Then this last week, Justice Kennedy, who finally got the idea after the success and popularity of Obamacare, and so he joined with Roberts to help save the Court from the anger of the People; Kennedy voted for both Obamacare and gay marriage and let Roberts off the hook on gay marriage.

The Supreme Court is not becoming liberal, instead it is in the face of an inane and crazy Neocon Republican Congress, by virtue of Citizens Unlimited. and the Court is simply fighting for survival.

After the Supreme Court’s Citizens United, the American people became so disenchanted that only one out of three voters even voted in 2014, and the Neocon Republican crazies won House and Senate and have since destroyed any integrity the U.S. Congress ever had.

Now the Robert’s Supreme Courts is struggling for survival from the wrath of the People.

If there is a revolutionary change coming in 2016, and there could be, it might lead to a Constitutional change in the appointments to the U.S. Supreme Court being limited to periods of time instead of lifetime appointments to the Court which has begat a problem of senile Justices serving on the Court.

And, ideally, with modern technology, America could amend the Constitution to allow a now possible direct democracy with America having national referendums on important issues. If the Constitutional forefathers were alive today, with today’s technology, they would approve of a more direct democratic United People of America instead of a United States of America; States have outlived their usefulness.

States squabbling with the Federal Government is becoming a pain in the ass to the People; the American People want to be a part of the whole United States of America, not a piece of the State where they live.
