Conservative Activist Judges

For years, conservatives have flogged the theme of “liberal activist judges”. The message is that unelected, liberal judges subvert the will of the people when they overturn laws on constitutional grounds.

The Supreme Court’s recent decision to overturn nearly 100 years of precedent and allow corporations unfettered rights to influence political campaigns should put to rest the canard that activist judges are by definition liberal. This stunning decision was promoted by the Court’s most conservative justices, including Chief Justice Roberts.

You may remember how when Roberts was being confirmed he said he was a conservative judge who would respect precedent and favor incremental, narrow rulings over sweeping motions. His actions in the recent case show that he has either a short memory, or simply lied to advance his confirmation. He is a conservative activist judge who ignored precedent and used a case that could have been interpreted narrowly to hand vast powers to the corporations who already hold too much influence in Washington. No one can deny that this was a radical, activist ruling enacted by a staunch conservative.

It should be clear by now that conservatives don’t really care about judicial activism. Judicial activism is only a bad thing if it works against their purposes. The duplicity of this no longer surprises me. What surprises me is how Democrats continue to ignore the obvious and allow for the confirmation of radicals like Roberts.

The other day, while I was at work, my sister stole my apple
ipad and tested to see if it can survive a 40 foot drop, just so she can be
a youtube sensation. My iPad is now destroyed and she has 83 views.
I know this is completely off topic but I had to share it with someone!

My programmer is trying to persuade me to move to .net from PHP.
I have always disliked the idea because of the costs. But
he's tryiong none the less. I've been using WordPress on a number of websites
for about a year and am worried about switching to
another platform. I have heard excellent things about blogengine.net.
Is there a way I can transfer all my wordpress posts into it?
Any help would be really appreciated!

I was cuгiouѕ if you ever consiɗered сhanging the
structure of your site? Its very well written; I love what youvе got to say.

people could connect with it better. Yоuve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or two imageѕ.

Maybe you could space it out better?
