Heh heh heh....<quoted text>Man ... them are some pretty sour grapes, Higgins.
Roberts as any kind of progressive is funny; Roberts compromising his principles in this decision in order to secure his legacy or to be loved is perhaps the most ridiculous thing I've heard about a Supreme Court Chief Justice (or any member) since the Warren Court or William O. Douglas - although some of the comments about the majority in Bush v Gore came close.
I am wondering about something, however - these elites you speak of.
Are they global, or are you not there yet?
Willie, the evidence is quite palpable, IMO. There is simply no rationale for Roberts' ruling, as until now, he has proven to be a conservative. But even the reasons he gave for this ruling, just don't pass constitutional muster. The contrived argument, of him securing the courts public "image" is clear.
The elites are not all liberals, and neither are progressives, Willie. Those who wring their hands in frustration, at the restrictions placed on them by the US constitution are progressive-statists. I have seen the trend, where the Congress colludes with the CIC with the judiciary, to increase their "elitist" powers.
They seldom "check" each other any more.... They have all become one big conglomeration, sucking more and more liberty from the people. They do this by expanding their tentacles, into every aspect of our lives. The evidence is all around you, sir.... I just don't know what else I can say to make you see....
