Supreme Court Goes LEFT If Obama Wins
A Commentary by J. D. Longstreet
For some reason, not much is made of the fact that the Supreme Court's
political philosophy is a direct result of the party in power when
vacancies suddenly appear through the passing of a Justice or the
retirement of a Justice.
The President in office, at the time of the vacancy, appoints a new
Justice and the US Senate approves or disapproves of his appointment.
(By now, dear reader, you should be quaking in your boots considering
that if Obama wins, he will likely get to appoint at least two more
Justices to the Supreme Court. The US would then have a
Socialist/Marxist court for many, many, decades into the future.)
It troubles me that today the Supreme Court is referred to, rather
often, by those within the Mainstream Media as a CONSERVATIVE court. It
is NOT a CONSERVATIVE court. If anything, it is a moderate court.
The court is actually split right down the middle with the swing
justice, a moderate, deciding almost all of the decisions. For evidence
look up all the 5 to 4 decisions handed down by the court in recent
As I write, we are awaiting a ruling by the SCOTUS on Obamacare. No
matter how the court rules America will undergo changes unlike anything
the country has experienced so far. Every American citizen will be
affected by the Court's ruling. There is no escaping it.
Now that Mr. Obama has decided to take on the powers of an Emperor, he
is railing at the Court in an attempt to intimidate the Court into a
ruling that will favor his signature legislation -- socialized medicine
-- in the US. No matter what happens, socialized medicine in America
will forever be known as "Obamacare."
If I have my wish realized the Court will rule the entire law
unconstitutional. Failing that, my fallback wish is that the Court rule
the individual mandate unconstitutional and that the Congress move
immediately to repeal the remainder of the law to limit the damage done
to our country as a direct result of Obamacare.
However, I am a realist, and I fully understand that with a divided
Congress, (The US House is in republican hands and the US Senate is in
democrat hands -- and very little chance that will change after
November) repeal of Obamacare is not very likely to happen. So, get
ready, America, for sky-rocketing insurance premiums IF you happen to
have a policy with one of the insurance companies that manages to remain
in business. Not many of the insurance companies in business as I
write this today will be able to continue to operate in the new business
environment after the Court's decision. So do not be surprised if you
get a letter informing you that your insurance company is going out of
business. Thousands of Americans WILL get such alerts.
The lesson here is -- don't play around with socialism. You cannot win. It kills its host country every time.
There is SO much at stake in this election -- not the least of which is
the so-called "balance" of the Supreme Court. If Romney wins in
November we can, at least, expect the Court to remain a moderate court
with the possibility of a REAL conservative Court in the future. If,
however, Obama wins in November, we can expect a quick death for
liberty and constitutionalism at the hands of an "Obamacourt."
If you are puzzled by my pointing to the Supreme Court as a political
entity when, by rights, it is supposed to be non-political, then I refer
you to the paragraph above in which I state that I am a realist. In a
perfect world, the Court would be non-political -- so would the Justice
Department. However, the world we live in is far from perfect and the
Court's record is there for all to see.
Just remember -- when you go to the polls in November -- if you vote for
Obama, you are actually voting for a Supreme Court so far left as to be
incredible -- unbelievable. The constitution, itself, will be in
danger of obsolescence. Freedom and liberty will most certainly be
curtailed in ways you will not believe.
To say, as many have (including myself), that the up-coming election in
November is the most important, most critical, election in the country's
history may, in fact, be an understatement. The very existence of
America as a nation of free people is at stake -- nothing less.
To put it as plainly as I know how: If Obama wins a second term --
America will be done for. That bright shining city on a hill will
crumble into dust and the lighthouse of freedom will be doused as
America stumbles into the darkness of obscurity winding her way onto the
ash heap of history. IT WILL BE OVER.
If there was ever a time for good men to come to the aid of their
country, of the constitution, of freedom and liberty, it is NOW.
