Alito - a well known SC (Supreme Court) justice that ruled akin to Tanny prior - affirm a bad rulling over a right one.
Roberts - another SC (supreme court) ruled with him, though since Roberts unlike Alito, shows some hope.
Citzen's united - SC (supreme court) ruling is the worst one in a century, as was Dead Scott in the prior century.
thus the parallel - bad rulings - i made.
From what I perceive, however, your country (The USA, I assume you live there)
no, the SC does not suck, most of thier rulings are good ones, sometimes they are bad/horrid - per my example.
sometimes great Justices Homles, make horrid rulings - sedition ruling of 1918? - limiting free speech.
world is gray Sir. that include the SC, generally the SC rules properly - with is good and bad justices,
sometimes - less times (but Citizens United is a HUGE ex of a bad ruling! - they fail.
yes -per small minds that seem to rule today (folks that champion Party/party idealogy over common sense centrism
those not under control of mind control if cult partisanship are able to think for themselves, and affirm parts from the left and rigfht (there is good in both), and also value Nation over party, affiriming the bigger picture. ie.. the nation good/unity/supporting the concepts in my Constitution over any political party.
per cultists that value their Party over my constitution, yes of them - which sadly seems to be the majority today - your theory is correct.
no fan of majority rule myself, that is the same a mob rule.
my Constitution (bill of rights more aptly) was written to defend the right of the minority.
i affirm that mindset, and as a minority (not of race or sex - I'm a white male) - but as an Atheist am in the same boat as women or blacks/indians/ect....as a minority.
my concern is with my Constiuition affirming liberty of the minority over the majority.
the 9th amendment is my fav BTW, and is the "spirit" of my Constitution IMO.
agreed, and why i voted for Ron Paul in 88 - all 2 percent of us.
nope. that is not what America following our Constitution is about.
what it is ideally (if she followed the Constition - she no longer does BTW) - is affirming the Will of the Majority, until that will inferferse with the minority, then the minority's will is affirmed and the majority is negated.
9 times out of 10 the will of the majority affirms that of the minority, so all is good, what make my Constitution (wish it was still valid ;-( ) great is the 1 out of 10 times the majority's view is wrong, and my constitution defends the 10 percenters.
thanks for reply Sir, you have a thinking mind, and one that is similar to mine, and so value your reply,
