Just about every Republican presidential candidate rants and raves about judicial tyranny In their view of this Supreme Court it focuses upon taking away the rights of decent Americans. Perhaps, I have been reading the decisions of the Roberts court a different way, but how does one term their decisions to be on the side of poor people, on the side of social justice, on the part of those seeking to end nomination of the wealthy?
1. The Hobby Lobby decision gave those who do not like laws the power to simply say, “it violates my religious beliefs.” This is probably the first time this novel idea has entered American law. Traditionally, we have separation of church and state.
2. The decision in Citizens gave every wealthy person a blank check to win elections with their money. Hardly, one for poor people.
3. The Court ended laws passed by Congress to control voter voter fraud.
4. The court prevented the EPA from controlling pollution.
Talk about tyranny of the court!
