The haggardness of poverty is everywhere seen contrasted with the sleekness of wealth, the exhorted labor of some compensating for the idleness of others, wretched hovels by the side of stately colonnades, the rags of indigence blended with the ensigns of opulence; in a word, the most useless profusion in the midst of the most urgent wants.Jean-Baptiste Say
Going back the last decade during the Bush administration, I can't think of any legislation this controversial being brought before the supreme court, where Alito and Roberts were asked to rule on something controversial Bush passed into law. I could be wrong though, and that's why I asked you to elaborate.
Figures... As soon as I ask a question, everyone bails.
So, let's see, I need examples but can't bring up certain examples....Listen, we both know that there have been ideologically driven decisions since the courts inception. Arguing specific cases only clouds the issue we are currently talking about. R v W was indeed one of those cases, Kelo another. If political leaning wasn't a consideration then liberals wouldn't have such a problem with today's court. You, yourself even threw out there that you thought that the court leaned too far right, although its current make up is 5 v 4 which correctly mirrors this country's political make up of Center/Right.
Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.
