Judicial Review and Federalist #78

I'd like to share with you, first, a legal definition of a strict constructionist I found on the Cornell Law Library website, since it seems as though that is how you view yourself. It states the following: "strict constructionists often look at the literal meaning of the words in question, OR, at their historical meaning at the time the law was written. Also referred to as "strict interpretation" or "original intent", because a person who follows the doctrine of strict construction of the Constitution tries to ascertain the 'intent of the fra

Reason #3000 - why I despise the GOP

We Live in a Horror Movie Now!

Thom,

This is a little hypothetical scenario I came up with a few years ago to illustrate why I believe we are already living in the world Sci-Fi writers warned us about.

Obama's Federal Court strikes down Dues part$$$ of Walker Anti-Union law to coincide with Sleaze-ball Democrat Tom Barrett's entry into Recall Race.

WISCONSIN UNION OFFICIALS REFUSE TO BE DUPED AND ARE DEMANDING THE FULL, ENTIRE, 100% REINSTATEMENT OF ALL PRE-WALKER WORKERS' RIGHTS IF OBAMA IS SUCCESSFUL IN CRAMING BARRETT DOWN THE THROATS OF THE WISCONSIN PEOPLE!!!

Americas Progressive Future

The people cannot stop growing themselves (age and genetics will have an impact on everyone).

$17 trillion funding gap discovered in ObamaCare.

I wouldn't doubt it. Finance Industry got their $16 Trillion, now Insurance is going to get their $16 Trillion and then that just leaves Real Estate to have subsidized the entire F.I.R.E. industry for the upcoming election.

Why Aren't Republicans in Favor of Medicare for all?

Republicans got one thing right during their failed attempt to repeal Obamacare: Americans DO want more choice.

So why aren't they getting behind Bernie Sanders as he pushes for the one thing that can give Americans real choice -- Medicare-for-all?
