I was reading an article in The Guardian the other day. It was decrying that in order to continue it’s “legitimacy”, the Supreme Court needed to have one member step down. Of course, that member needed to be a conservative.
It got me thinking. I can’t remember the last time liberals were in charge of a portion of our government, and felt that it wasn’t fair and they actually needed to tighten things up a bit, so they would sit some people down, be it in Congress, the White House, or the Supreme Court. In fact, throughout most of the 1960’s the Supreme Court was rather liberal. Never once did people complain about how that court needed to become more conservative.
So, this is just another example of The Guardian in particular, and liberalism in general admitting to the rest of the world that they are indeed as biased as can be. If having one ideology in charge of a branch of government is so bad, and it looks like the other side isn’t going to get it’s way, then why are Democrats pushing so hard to try and get rid of the filibuster rule in the Senate? They WANT to have a situation where you don’t have to work across the aisle, but you can ram your own agenda down the other party’s throats with 50 members in a 100 member body? That’s fair?
Of course, The Guardian is not being fair. They are being crybabies. They don’t like the fact that the one thing liberals have relied on for decades is the fact that the judiciary branch of government could always intervene with their losses. So, if there happened to be a Republican president, or a Republican Congress, that’s OK. The judiciary branch could “legislate from the bench” and declare laws passed unconstitutional. And if it got to the Supreme Court, hey…they’d have liberals backs!
But all of a sudden you’ve got a 6-3 conservative Supreme Court! And Donald Trump changed the game by nominating and getting through the Senate conservative federal judges. All of a sudden the playing field has shifted and isn’t as liberal as it once was. Now liberals can’t depend on the Supreme Court to back their most precious agendas. Items like climate change, abortion, immigration, DACA, socialized medicine, and healthcare all are falling on deaf ears.
What’s the liberal solution to that problem? Simple. If you can’t win the game by following the rules, then you need to change the rules. That’s what HR-1 was all about. Remember that? That basically would have insured that liberals ruled the government forever and made Republicans an afterthought. They are trying to change the rules by getting rid of the filibuster because they can’t run roughshod over Republicans on most issues. They even tried to figure out how to get DACA into a budget reconciliation bill. They got caught! And when the conservatives took at 6-3 majority at the high court, what was the Democrats response? They called to expand the size of the court to 15 so that they could out-maneuver the conservatives that had legally been nominated and appointed to the high court. If you can’t win, change the rules and cry until you do.
The Guardian, yea, all liberals are exposing themselves to the crybabies that they are. And they need to be kept in that position for a good long while until they learn how to play well with others. Frankly I don’t see them playing well with anyone. They will end up eating their own when the time comes…just wait!
Carry on world…you’re dismissed!
