Liberals Bet It All on the Court — And They’re About to Lose

Start

Live by the court, die by the court.

For decades now, the Left has been using the courts to force their unpopular, unconstitutional ideas on the American people, who would not accept them through the democratic process. Some of the most egregious examples include Roe v. Wade (abortion), Obergefell v. Hodges (same-sex marriage), and NFIB v. Sebelius (Obamacare).

It’s awfully convenient — the Left doesn’t have to worry about any of that democracy stuff. (The 31 states that voted against redefining marriage prior to Obergefell, for example, just weren’t cutting it.)

But when so many of your core issues rest on Supreme Court decisions so flagrantly unconstitutional, they’re liable to be overturned by reasonable new justices should they overtake the majority.

That’s why liberals are so freaked out about Judge Neil Gorsuch’s impending confirmation to the Supreme Court.

They know that he will take a fair minded view of all cases and consider laws and the Constitution as they are written. He will not read things into the Constitution that are not there — such as the mystical right to privacy hidden in the penumbras of the Constitution that allow for abortion, or the freedom of intimacy that allows for same-sex marriage (that the post-Civil War Congress was obviously referring to when they were writing the 14th Amendment to outlaw slavery in 1866). Liberals are so insecure about the unlawfulness of these decisions that they have made them beyond reproach — sacred cows that cannot be questioned because they are “superprecedents” (or even “super-duper precedents“).

When Gorsuch says he will apply the law as written, they know their ability to force their will down the throats of the people is in jeopardy. So they do everything they can to stop him — even filibustering with absolutely no justification whatsoever.

Live by the court, die by the court.
