Liberals v. Democrats

Supreme Court officially repeals Ninth and Tenth Amendments.

I do not believe you can applaud federal law and condemn medical marijuana users and still call yourself a liberal in any sense. I suspect most people on the Left who do not sit in Congress are disappointed in this decision.

I will point out that two of the three dissenters were Rehnquist and Thomas, two parts of the three-headed monster (along with Scalia) that Senate Democrats have demonized in their filibuster against allegedly conservative judicial nominees. Yet all four liberals - Souter, Breyer, Ginsburg, Stevens - voted for the federal fascism. (The moderates, Kennedy and O'Connor, were split.)

What a price to pay. Congressional Democrats, as loathesome a bunch as Congressional Republicans, want nothing but absolute power and have nothing but scorn for the concept of state's rights. All they want are federal judges who will uphold the abortion, sodomy, and prayer in school decisions, and then rubber stamp the federal police state.

I do not believe that normal liberals are so fanatically anti-state's rights as are the "liberals" in Congress and the Supreme Court. I thought liberals thought of themselves as pro-individual rights, as opposed to anti-state's rights. They will soon find out that, in advancing their pet causes of abortion, gay rights, and secularism, they will lose every - and I mean every - other freedom.
