What's happening to my government?

Assisted suicide is so obviously a state’s rights issue!

Medical marijuana is so obviously a states right’s issue!

Justice Scalia is so obviously a hypocrite.
How can a supreme court justice scream “STATES RIGHTS” so loud for so many years and
IGNORE THEM SO BLATENTLY when the political winds shift?

Our government is being overrun by a faction. What’s up Madison?
Whachu got on this?

“If a faction consists of less than a majority, relief is supplied by the republican principle, which enables the majority to defeat its sinister views by regular vote. It may clog the administration, it may convulse the society; but it will be unable to execute and mask its violence under forms of the constitution.” (from Federalist #10)

Ok, thanks.

But the minority has the presidency, the legislature, and it’s working on the judicial. How’d that happen?

The administration is clogged; society is practically epileptic; and the faction is perpetrating its violence under forms of the constitution (can anyone say Nuclear Option?), masks of mass media punditry expertly trained in doublespeak, rampant consumerism, and fear.

We’re not even supposed to have Bush. We’re supposed to be electing wise and good men, the best of America! Come on now! This isn’t even close!

Now, our President and Congress, in their wisdom and goodness, are nominating and confirming judges (or lawyers) possibly more beholden to their faction than the constitution.

Something is wrong.

I hope it can be fixed.

I’d love to see John Roberts come down hard on the side of federalism, spanking Gonzales and Ashcroft back to loony town. There is no room in the constitution for the federal government to force their ideology down the throats of people who voted twice for Death with Dignity!

From now on, I’m going to think positive:

John Roberts is a good judge, he will make decisions that reflect the constitution and benefit the nation.

and

The Democrats, under Howard “hide the salami” Dean (I LOVE that!), will get their act together and take back the congress in 2006 ... and that will be a good thing.
