I received a lot of calls today from people concerned about my reaction. Frankly, i was not angry. To understand why, see my other blog. Rather, i felt betrayed and embarrassed to be a Republican. What Chief Justice John Roberts did this week made me feel like i did when Republican Arlen Specter sided with the President on Obamacare and switched parties.
i read the opinions today by all the justices and listened to the legal interpretation this evening by Mark Levin. i won't regurgitate the legal translation from Levin but stand behind his interpretation 110%. What happened today was nothing more than a reckless disregard and abandonment of the Constitution by a Republican Justice appointed by a Republican President!
i was appalled at Justice Roberts statements regarding the fact that his job is not to protect the American people from individuals they elected to office. Rush Limbaugh touched on this earlier today. The American people were lied to, misled, and duped by a President and Democrat controlled congress on the subject matter of taxation. Chief Justice Roberts could have opted to protect the America people from a fraudulent act if he wanted to. However, with that said, that is not his job. Rather, he only has one job and that is to protect and defend the Constitution. Tonight, Mark Levin made a brilliantly compelling legal argument and pointed out several historical discrepancies and contradictions between this decision today and past decisions on similar issues of taxation. Not only did Justice Roberts contradict himself in his opinion, he allowed the court to do something unprecedented. He essentially allowed the legislation to be modified into something different than what was passed by Congress!
Justice Roberts will go down in history as a liberal justice based on his actions this week. At the end of the day, the damage is done. Even if Obamacare is repealed, it would take decades for a conservative court to reverse today's decision. is that possible? Yes, but not likely. Take a moment to review the current snapshot of the supreme court. Do you see what i see? The 3 newest judges are not only liberal, but radical! God help us!
ps: Do you now understand why it is more important than ever before to pin these people down to find out where the hell they stand on issues? Getting them elected and hoping they vote the way we want is an exercise in futility! We need something better. We need them all to stop the lip service and simply, "Show Me the CHIPS" See more here for the plan that will CHANGE EVERYTHING!
