    He knew the results weeks ago. They vote not long after oral arguments. The rest of the time is spent drafting the written parts.

    The public prefers to be liberal
    the politicians keep pushing things to the right.

    Were that it so. But my experience is that the politicians follow their constituents. This is a fairly conservative country. I’m delighted when freedoms are expanded and disheartened when they contract. But that’s just me. I think the aggregate polling data should be trusted, though, which means there are a heck of a lot of conservatives out there.

    Depending on what you ask people, it is not a “fairly conservative country.” If you ask about specific components of universal healthcare instead of using the term “Obamacare” or “socialized medicine,” the vast majority of Americans approve. Most Americans of both major parties approve of same-sex marriage.
    What is strange to me is how things that Americans support have been so successfully demonized by certain people and media outlets. And the consequence of that has been the election of officials who do not, in fact, support what Americans want.

    Always interesting how those that would deny rights to large segments of our society – call it “expanding their freedoms”.
    Politicians follow MONEY> if you don’t have gobs of it – you are not a constituent.

    To say nothing about the last election; while losing the gerrymandered House in a landslide, Democratic candidates actually received anywhere from one to five million more votes, depending on whose count you go by. Still a lot.

    Very true. The way our country is organized, the most populous areas vote democratic. But the structure of our political system has given fewer voters from less populated areas disproportionate weight. Plus, conservatives are passionate and they tend to vote. I think they sense that the tide of history has been moving against them. This necessitates they obstruct, obfuscate, and work very hard…yet again and again, they keep running into the hard wall of facts and reality. The typical conservative response is not careful deliberation, but panicked hysteria, flinging half truths and emotional nonsense all about the place.


    But I think my essential point remains. Compared to Western Europe, fo example, ours is a fairly conservative country when it comes to guns, military spending, the social safety net, religion, and so forth.

    Yeah, let’s be really satisfied with these two appalling decisions by lefty, activist judges who are utter fools with the morals of goats.

    Any victory for Antonin is a disaster for America.

    Hmmm…so enforcing the law that states gays and everyone should be treated equally when it comes marriage is more appalling than ensuring citizens get health care? Or vice versa?
    The only thing appalling here is your way of thinking.
    The VERY conservative court simply got two right. Stopped Clock Syndrome.

    The diverse comments suggest that even the phrase “liberty and justice for all” is subject to interpretation.

    Your whole diatribe would make sense if you are talking about liberals & democrats It’s unfortunate that democrats only have to win the larger cities to win a state. The way the system is set up, those in larger populated areas have a disproportionate weight in voting. Check out any congressional district map of the country & it’s overwhelmingly red. Liberals are the ones that lie, obstruct, obfuscate & work very very hard to impose their beliefs on the rest of us. The typical liberal response is not based on any facts, logic or reason, just emotions. Anyone that dares to hold a different opinion is bullied & called names.
