The Supreme Court under Chief Justice John Roberts and Associate Justice Samuel Alito has returned to a rule-of-law court, so there is no longer a laundry list of recent disappointing decisions that stray from America’s founding principles.
But lest there be any doubt, a vote for the Republican Party continues to be a vote for indefinite detention, proudly and boldly asserted on the President’s say-so, with no input from the legislative branch:
Consequently there are no recent Supreme Court decisions with which I vigorously disagree, with the exception of Boumediene v. Bush in 2008, Hamdan v. Rumsfeld in 2006 and Kelo v. City of New London in 2005. The court’s strong record in recent years proves the tremendous importance of appointing constitutionally based judges and Supreme Court Justices.
For what it’s worth, even Justice Scalia thought the government went too far in Hamdan, by detaining an American citizen without recourse to legal process. Consensus has moved towards the Democrats on this issue, and it’s time for all the concern trolls to show their quality, and stand with us.
