    Because our elected officials do something our reactionary elements don't like, and what do they do? They don't try and win hearts and minds to change the law, no! They decide to use the courts to subvert democracy.

    Re: Judge allows states' healthcare suit to proceed

    We now can pray that these suits are successful and we can begin the roll back to sanity and away from the Anti-Americanism that has so worrisome and dangerous.

    This I pray is the beginning of the end of the Reign of the Trifecta of Doom's attempts to destroy our economy.

    One step at a time.

    While the majority of the US population does want health care reform the majority of the US population also did not want Obamacare. So sorry but I see nothing here that indicates that they are trying to "subvert democracy".

    The majority want Obamacare when you bother to actually sit down and explain to them what's in the bill and dissect all the lies the right wing has told about it.

    Doesn't change the fact that they'd rather sue than change what they don't like through the ballot.

    Didn't you come out recently? I wonder if you felt the same way about Proposition 8 in CA.. Ya know, using the courts to "subvert democracy"?

    It still gets to the point that "judicial activism" is little more than, "They decided in a way I didn't like."

    Perhaps, but to me, judicial activism represents writing law from the bench.

    If conservatives can do it with healthcare, why can't gays? That's all this is: A bit scoop of right-wing hypocrisy.

    Anyway, the rule of law is mostly good, but horribly inconvenient. I think we'd do better to avoid it some of the time. Like most things, it's negotiable.

    Umm...that is how our system works. A law is passed by the Congress/Senate and if someone believes that it is unconstitutional or violates peoples rights then they sue through the federal courts. The courts then decide if it is unconstitution/violates rights or not. It has been this way since the begining of the US.
