Supreme Court Goes LEFT If Obama Wins ... J. D. Longstreet

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 years.

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.
