Supreme court nominee tests are wrong but we have them. Gay Marriage, Democrats RIGHT, Republicans left both for the wrong reasons.
For all of this controversy over the obviously arrogant, likely a bigot and certain liberal Supreme Count nominee Sotomayer it is interesting to note the democrats always resort to tests. Basically, a nominee is only acceptable to the democrats if they can be assured the nominee has a position on certain controversial topic in line with the liberal agenda and his nominee can be assured to rule in favor of liberals no matter what they do.
One of these tests is the entire same sex marriage controversy. This has included same sex civil unions, same sex marriage, the legality of both, the definition of both and of course what makes them legal.
The bottom line is the conservative position is correct, assuming you are a true constitutionalistconservative. Republicans are taking an authoritative position not a conservative one. The Declaration of Independence states correctly that rights are unalienable and list three of all rights possible, life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. The founders followed natural law and enshrined in the Declaration of Independence and protect it with the constitution. This law is the individual is supreme and the individual defines his own rights. The government does not define rights only protects them. Democrats are wrong too. Not in their defense of the right to define marriage for yourself and choose your partner, they are wrong in their argument to support it. Their argument is to basically vilify the republican position. In reality, the democrats need only reaffirm the Declaration of Independence and the protection of all rights in the constitution. The democrats do not do this because they would effectively make their own arguments wrong and ineffective, for restricting speech with the fairness doctrine and political correctness or their insistence on removing your right to bear arms.
The real problem on the supreme court goes back decades. The court is not really tasked to be some sort of ruling body over all law. This court is also not tasked to be the moral compass of the country. They also have a problem with not correcting mistakes of the past court and they can not accept that the government takes second place to the individual. The court actually believes that as long as the legislature votes for a law, said law is right by default. This mentality is what allows segregation, Slavery and other injustices to exist and the fact is current members of the court and Sotomayer are the same as the previous Justices in regard to this very important problem pervasive in all of government.
The fact is Satomayer does not change the balance of power in the Supreme Court and with filibuster proof control of the Senate to the democrats, she is going to be approved. We will just have to deal with the outcome of an arrogant bigoted woman and her decisions later. We are stuck with this poor choice for a justice, we can only hope nothing of significance is affected by her.
The Prophet Obama, Queen Pelosi, Court Jester Reid, Village Idiot Biden, the rest of the Marxist liberal democrats and even the idiot republicans who lost the power because they headed left too, Keep promising they will solve all problems. They keep making promises about how they will save the economy, save healthcare, make it all cost less and in general make a utopia where Americans need not worry about anything.
Aside from the fact that these idiots in politics are racking up debt beyond anything imaginable, the real question to ask history is when have politicians ever done anything useful with their so called plans to save everyone.
The fact is there is nothing. There is not one program for welfare that has worked. After 70 or more years, retirement is still not assured, healthcare is more expensive, inflation is insane, the war on poverty failed, communism failed, socialism failed, protecting the people from insane megalomaniacs is failing, security is failing and there is not a single year when the government actually reduced the amount of dollars they take for budgets. Do not be fooled by the smoke screens, % of GDP is not invalid but numbers like that just hide the fact that the government has been spending more and more every single year.
So when Obama gets on his pulpit and claims he will save healthcare dollars, reduce costs, reduce taxes and somehow all of his plans to nationalize healthcare will somehow only cost a few rich guys more money, do not believe it. All evidence from history about Democrats and their plans is they will cause the price of everything to go up, taxes will go up, the middle and lower classes will pay more in taxes and they will unequally distribute their largess to those they feel are "in need" while the rest of us foot the bill.
All of democrat history for at least the 20th and 21st centuries are exactly that. Republicans have also not done any better. The fact is Reagan was right, government is not the solution to the problems, it is the cause of these problems.
People if you want an easier life, lower taxes, cheaper and more effective healthcare, jobs and retirement then demand the politicians get the hell out of the way. Medicare, medicaid, Social Security and etc are government created programs to non existent problems that have created more problems than solved. We would be better off without the politicians in our lives. Their job is to protect the country for FOREIGN invasion, not search Americans in airports, Their job is to administer the law in the form of Justice for citizens to resolve conflicts or to punish those who abridge the unalienable rights of individuals. Government is to facilitate individuals doing business and living together in a common country and government is to protect rights, not define them nor abridge them by calling them privileges. Force the politicians to pay attention to the actual constitution and live within the restrictions it creates for the government.
The politicans are doing what Patrick Henry feared years ago when he debated against a federal government, they are taking over everything because they are confiscating all of the resources the country produces all in the name of "the people" and under the belief they know what is best for each of us. There is a reason the 9th amendment exists, it assures us that we define rights as individuals and the government, corporations, religions, groups, states, cities or the UN have no authority over rights at all, only to protect them.
History shows a long progression of the politicians slowly taking rights away, abridging freedom where possible and never have they reversed course. There is no year in living memory, where an abridged right or freedom was given back, no where in living memory where the politicians actually used less money and never in living memory has the socialist welfare programs proven to be successful by eliminating the problems they were created to resolve.
Do you really think the Cap and Trade on CO2 will actually reduce CO2? Do you really believe reducing CO2 will reduce global warming?
Do you really believe Obama when he says he will magically make healthcare cheaper and free?

The Prophet Obama in is awesome wisdom has decided that depression era economics are the way to go. He has nationalized Banks, auto manufacturers and insurance companies to go along with the nearly nationalized healthcare and utility companies already under harsh government regulation.
The Prophet has gone into deficit spending so high that no previous administration or government could hold a candle to the insane amount of money, including former administrations of the Soviet Union and Red China.
The prophet and his followers have not had time yet to spend 15% of this Trillion dollar stimulus package. The prophet Obama has spent money mostly to support the liberal agenda, welfare programs and activities that support unions,which has little impact in the economy. These are not areas that produce anything, they are one of the causes of the problems.
Since the economy is improving slowly, it is clear the stimulus does nothing because the Democrats have not spent it yet and still the economy improves. Yet, Obama and his democrat sycophants are clamoring for a second stimulus, despite the clear modern proof they are pointless, since these same democrats are ignoring the fact that the depression was caused by this kind of government spending.
Stimulus has no chance to work. It did not work in the 1930s because taking vast sums of capital out of a capitalist economy is counter productive. If this is not believed it is also what the government spends the money on. The engine of the economy is the 2/3 share that consumers control. If a stimulus were to have any impact, it would be a better idea to send that money at the engine of the economy, where 66% of the economy exists. The 33% controlled by business and government is not even half the economic activity yet this is the only place liberals are sending stimulus money, business and government, mostly government.
Liberals who claim republicans only support big business are bankrupting the people to take trillions in taxes and give it too --- big business. Go figure. You would think liberals would be sending that money to "they people" they always claim to be supporting. It is a bad idea but throwing 1 trillion dollars at 60% of the economy would probably have a better impact than what they are doing now.
Since most of the money is not spent, lets reverse this and not spend any of it nor ask for more. Get the government out of the way and the economy will do just fine.
The liberals can't do this for their agenda. They wish for a Marxist like utopia where the government takes care of everything. The best way to do that is to make the people poor, take over the economy and control everything, so the last thing the Liberals want to do is actually fix the economy. The first stimulus managed to ensure the government of the future will control well over half the GNP ever year. A second stimulus will probably raise that control to 80% of the economy. They are managing to do what Lenin and Mao did without force because the fools who support these liberals are allowing it to happen by vote.
Kruschev was right, he said the soviets could never instantly convert enough Americans to socialism overnight but simply doing it slowly over decades would work.
