WWSD: What Will SCOTUS Do?

The answer to that question is a better question. What has SCOTUS done since Bush v Gore? They have made decisions which changed history, always leaning to the right, severely to the right. The court has no regard for “strict interpretation of the law,” a conservative myth.

The five justices on the court who were appointed by the right have a duty to support the ideals of the far right, no matter the law, no matter the precedent.

Bush v. Gore gave us a clue as to what we should expect from this court. There were many ways the court could have decided this matter which would have accomplished the same result. Instead, they chose to make a statement. Next was Citizens United.

Kennedy, the only real vote on SCOTUS, was somewhat dependable for a non-partisan vote before the new leadership arrived during The Bush Years. The pressure exerted by Roberts made overturning history no problem for Kennedy.

Kennedy is a broken man. He will vote the will of the right, just like the other four, in all future decisions, all. This is not a prediction. This is a fact.

How will SCOTUS vote in the matter currently facing the highest court in our land? The answer would be simple if this was a decision which favored the agenda of the right and the next election and did not have implications on other issues which adversely affect the right’s agenda.

Unlike Bush v. Gore, this decision cannot be a scam of historical proportions, electing a president, one time and one time only, without precedent. Unlike Citizens United, this decision does not overturn decency by pouring gobs of money into campaigns that will, in most cases, benefit the right. This decision will have legs; this decision will impact future cases brought before the court; so far, the court has been consistent in its decisions.

Chief Justice Roberts may be a tool of the right but he is not a stupid tool.

So, how will SCOTUS vote on the matter before them? In order to answer this question I will assume a “degree of saneness.” That is to say, I will pretend the right wing members of the court aren’t completely nuts. This is a leap! To offset, I will assume Kennedy is not going to make the switch to moderate.

Isn’t it amazing how many members of this court have been appointed by the right and leaned left during their term? Funny how no member has been appointed by the left and leaned right during their term. Maybe not so funny…but that’s a topic for another rant.

To be brutal, to be Frank, the decision will not favor the law. The court has expedited this matter to try to help the right get President Barack Hussein Obama out of office. Roberts hates Obama and it is his God Given Mission to get Whitey back in the Oval Office.

The decision will be broad enough to dismantle health care reform but narrow enough not to impact other decisions giving the court the illusion of consistency.

The court is not about what is right (as in correct).

The court is about advancing an agenda. If We The People do not keep a Democrat in office until one of the Right Wing Justices gets a bad cold, we are dumb as dirt. The next election, and the election after that, and the election after that, are not about the agenda of the left. It’s about preserving Justice For All.

We The People have to get SCOTUS back on track. The folks on the right want to return to the days of The Haves and The Have Nots. Remember when George W. Bush joked about his friends being The Haves and The Have Mores? Well, he wasn’t kidding. He was speaking the truth. And he was speaking the truth on national television.

They keep telling us. But we don’t listen!

    It’s been a while, Frank. Glad to see something finally got under you skin. Personally, I think it will be transformative when SCOTUS overturns ObamaCare. It’s time for America to realize Iran doesn’t have it so bad, afterall. They only have 1 Supreme Ruler. We have 9.

    John Roberts is a disgrace to the robe & gavel. He is no more a chief justice than William Rehnquist was an honorable man. There’s tyranny in America, the 5 Sociopaths clinging with white knuckles to the right side of the bench.

    God Help Us…

    We don’t need our government telling us we have to buy health insurance. It’s unAmerican. Those who don’t have the integrity to take care of themselves can always use the Emergency Room. I don’t care if it ends up costing us more, it’s the principle and that’s what you on The Left don’t seem to understand. We’re becoming a Nanny State. We’re a nation born of Revolution and American Exceptionalism. When the day comes, and it’s soon to arrive, that ObamaCare is overturned, the nation will take a step closer to balance, like when Plessy v. Fergeson was the Law of the Land.

  3. Vince says:

    We have government mandates that people are fine with. If you drive, you are mandated to carry insurance and if you don’t, there is a criminal penalty. You are mandated to educate your children. Failure to do so has serious criminal consequences including the loss of your parental rights.

    If Obama and the democrats had any real resolve, we would have Medicare part E. E is for everyone, single payor, end of story. Insurance companies that are in the business of siphoning billions a month off the health care system would go back into the businesses they belong, property and casualty. Health care insurance should not be a business. Profits for insurance companies should not be more important that health and welfare of the US citizens.

    The USA is 35th in the World for healthcare and lifespan.

      16a15c35f6You can certainly see your skllis within the work you write. The world hopes for even more passionate writers like you who aren’t afraid to mention how they believe. Always go after your heart. 18d

  4. Babs says:

    Vince, you are so correct! Fareed Zacaria on CNN did a special on health care and we rank at the bottom of everything and pay by far the most! Even Taiwan has better health care! And I do care that someone who doesn’t take the time and handle the expense to take care of himself or his family, but chooses to use the emergency room as his own private health care costs me money! That’s unamerican and exceptionally selfish! And you on the right can’t see the forest for the trees, which are tall, just ask Romney!

    Brilliant, Frank. Absolutely brilliant. And timely. Thanks for helping me to understand what’s at stake. And what’s most likely going to happen. It’s a curse to “live in interesting times.”

    I cede my time back to Vince. I’d ask everyone to re-read what he just wrote. Interesting as hell. Thanks…

      16a142351caDefinitely believe that which you steatd. Your favorite reason seemed to be on the internet the simplest thing to be aware of. I say to you, I definitely get annoyed while people think about worries that they plainly do not know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top and also defined out the whole thing without having side-effects , people can take a signal. Will probably be back to get more. Thanks 187

    So you understand the issue and could probably have argued it better than the experts … Actually forget the probably… Instead we get broccoli. The one point Anne missed was OUR SYSTEM DOES NOT WORK … We spend the most to get the least…. We rank 23rd in the world … Sad … So sad … Trouble is the RIGHT does not have a conscience … plain and simple

  8. Anon says:

    Mandating people buy insurance is not a liberal idea.Mandating the insurance companies make less profits off health care would be a liberal idea. Which is why there is a good chance the supreme court will upheld the mandate.

  9. Vince says:

    If abortion is murder, is wearing a rubber kidnapping?

  10. BF says:

    If we were talking about a non-partisan court you would b correct. However, based on past performance this decision will go along party lines and it will be 5-4 on a narrow decision to eliminate the mandate. The only reason the court took the case NOW is to help the right in the coming election. They feel no fiduciary responsibility to we the people!

  11. Vince says:

    The very rich, for many years, got the poor, white, religious Christians to vote for them. And vote and vote. The promises were abortion and race and religion, they came close, but, knowing, never really delivered. And all those years, the rich got whatever laws they wanted to become even richer than ever believed. Then all of a sudden, all those voters, at the same time, are demanding only candatiates that finally deliver the promises. The tea party Christian militia wants its payback.

  12. Vince says:

    Romney will be forced to make Rand Paul the VP. A showing that he will deliver them what they want.

    With these extreme view and crazy thinking, they won’t recover for a while. Either they win now or they will lose big momentum and have to totally redefine itself.

  13. Vince says:

    I meant to say Paul Ryan not Rand Paul

  14. Soumen says:
