Obama's Supreme Court
Means Change Alright...
From reporter Jim Brown of OneNewsNow.com comes unsettling (but well-founded) speculation about what kind of changes we can expect in the makeup of the Supreme Court in the event of an Obama victory in November.
For all the gaseous vagueness of Obama's speeches, there is much in the Illinois Senator's career that we can draw upon to construct a fairly concrete approximation of the kind of jurists he would favor.
Add to this the distinct possibility of a fillibuster-proof Democrat majority in the Senate, and a picture emerges of a pure, undiluted strain of socialism injected directly into American jurisprudence that would be exceedingly difficult to overcome once in place.
According to Executive Director Curt Levey of the Committee for Justice, Senator Obama's opposition to the Born Alive Infant Protection Act (on two different occasions) would likely signal the repeal of the federal ban on partial-birth abortion -- with taxpayers footing the gruesome tab.
Americans should also expect the acceleration and intensification of efforts to redefine marriage to include same-sex unions. Such unions, which have been overwhelmingly rejected by voters in dozens of elections across the country at the state level, might enjoy federal validation that would compel states to accept them, regardless of voters' wishes.
Religion in the public square -- and many other Judeo-Christian tenets long accepted in the West -- could also find themselves in an Obama Court's legal crosshairs:
"Ten Commandments would be removed all over the place. 'Under God' would be removed from the Pledge of Allegiance. The death penalty would be banned," says Levey. "There'd probably be constitutional rights to all sorts of new things like human cloning and physician-assisted suicide. Racial preferences would proliferate."
The ideas of radical and corrupt groups like ACORN would also find new advocates in positions of power at federal regulatory agencies. The result would be a continuation of the kind of policies that led directly to the mortgage debacle, with more compulsory pressure on lending institutions to loan money to people who are poor credit risks -- with American taxpayers as unwilling co-signers.
"You'd have all these liberal banking laws take effect -- and the very problem that led to the [current] financial crisis would actually be required under law."
We are at a crucial point in the composition of the Supreme Court, which is perhaps best described as both nominally conservative and liberal, depending on the judicial whims of Justice Anthony Kennedy on any given day. With a trio of liberal justices (Ruth Bader Ginsburg, age 75; John Paul Stevens, age 88; and David Souter, age 69) possibly set to retire in the coming years due either to age or illness, the next President will be in a position to exert a potentially tremendous impact on the Court's ideological makeup. Of all the considerations on voters' minds as they cast their ballots, this one surely ranks among the very highest.
