The US Supreme Court is just about to turn the page on its relevance.
Here is a statement from one of the bigger fools on the bench:
“I think it’s a serious problem. A democracy should not be dependent for its major decisions on what nine unelected people from a narrow legal background have to say,”
So says Andy Kennedy. The United States is a – democracy?
And if indeed The United States is a democracy why do we need a supreme court?
Why not just vote on everything and the majority wins every time. That is what a democracy is.
Of course The United Sates is NOT a Democracy, it is a “Dictatorship of the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court” form of government where the Chief Justice plays one group of justices against the others and casts the deciding vote to impose health care insurance on a public that never voted, democratically, for it.
It really is that simple.
But remember what good old Ben Franklin said about Republics. He said something to the effect of; you can have a Republic as long as people don’t vote to help themselves to the wealth of others. And Jefferson warned about having a moral people in charge of government.
Obviously our Republic days are over and Justice Andy is wrong about the US being a Democracy as well as getting the math wrong on the number of justice it takes to do something.
I wonder how long a “Dictatorship by Chief Justice” form of government can last?
How does a “Dictator by Chief Justice” government end?
What does it transition to?
I guess we will find out when the money to buy more paper runs out at the US Treasury.
