“OBAMACARE DIVIDES FEDERAL COURTS”
This was the recent headline story in the Beaumont Texas Enterprise. The next header read, “Opposite rulings issued hours apart, Cases could go to the Supreme Court”. Why will it take months to settle this issue? No leadership.
What on earth has happened in our land of laws? We have replaced using our Constitution as the basis for our laws and replaced it with the platforms of the Republican and the Democratic political parties. The sad part is our main stream media has also changed from reporting the news to publishing whatever it takes to divide the people with the Democratic liberals receiving 90% of the bias.
We now live in a leaderless vacuum. We have a President on steroids changing some and ignoring other laws in what ever way he chooses. We have a Justice Department that enforces only the laws they desire and sue the states if they try to enforce the laws that the federal government refuses to enforce. They should be forced to publish what laws they refuse to enforce and save a lot of money. It would be nice to know how many liberal lawyers Eric Holder has hired in six years.
To me we have a government that is so bloated they have to keep issuing regulations to make sure they don’t have to do honest work like the rest of our people. If they keep the people divided they will never have to worry about their own retirement. Supported by Harry Reid and a Senate gone mad, they have completely destroyed most retirement plans for anyone entering the work force. They have made healthcare the responsibility of the government instead of programs provided by industry for centuries.
Who loses, the working American and the loyalty we used to have between the worker and the business owners. For the first time in my nearly 84 years I have zero confidence in our governments. Why, because we have no leaders to even vote for, that will even try to unite Americans. Congress and the President should either follow the Constitution or legally change it so that the people will at least know what laws apply for them to follow. Even third world countries would not allow the elected leaders to destroy or ignore the documented legal system.
What really disturbs me is we have all Federal Courts and the Supreme Court unable to read the Constitution the same way. Every decision made is to comply with the political agenda of those appointed by the Senate and approved by the President currently in power. Qualifications are not even necessary if those appointed have donated enough money to the political party or its candidate in particular that votes for their conformation.
It would be refreshing to see even one critical decision made by the Judiciary at any level that was not politically motivated. Like everyone else I find some of our laws offensive but I was raised to follow the laws even if I oppose them. I dream of being able to vote one more time in my lifetime for a real “Leader” who at least promises to unite Americans again. The way things appear today even my grandchildren will never have a “Leader” to vote for in their lifetime. Even our military has no leader public recognizable like we have had during most of my lifetime. If I am wrong please tell me who you recognize as a leader, just one will be a surprise. I will research them and report what I find.
If the current leader, John Roberts, Chief Justice of the Supreme Court, was a real leader he would stop all of this political decision making by both the Supreme and the Federal courts. A real leader, if he is incapable, would resign and ask our military to replace Congress with public servants instead of lawyers who make politics an occupation. Will it take a civil war to unite America one more time?
