Mea Culpa Mea Culpa Mea Maxima Culpa

Updated on July 5, 2012


I owe all my conservative followers a big I’m Sorry for my last hub; Do I Owe Chief Justice Roberts an Apology. I tried every way possible not to face the truth and accept his decision for what it was a total and complete sellout of his principles.


The initial fallout from some conservative pundits was let’s find the Silver Lining in this Cloud so they looked for and fictitiously found the Commerce Clause angle upon which to hang their hats. Yeah that’s what it was he was closing the door once and for all on this Regimes future attempts to use the Commerce Clause to justify forcing Americans against their will to do or buy something in order to expand Big Government's Control over our lives.


They just couldn’t face the fact that once again we had been beaten; once again one of our staunch rigid Ideologs had sold out. Roberts was supposed to be the bulwark against this unconstitutional, unpopular law. He was to be our Pope Leo XIII guarding the gates as Attila Obama stood ready with his army of Czars to ransack our modern day Rome. The gates in this case were analogous to our Constitution and he was supposed to be its’ strictest guardian!


Ever notice the Liberals never cave in; do you ever remember Darth Vader Ginsburg coming down on the side of conservatism. No Liberals stick to their guns. Of course it’s easier for them given the fact they are always praised in the State Controlled Media for their enlightened views and opinions. But doing the right thing never has been easy.


Was Roberts somehow bought off; was he threatened or cajoled? Was there a scandal out there the Regime’s Gestapo had uncovered? There must be something to explain this total and complete reversal of his values and principles. The fact remains he gave the Regime what they wanted and they could care less that he stretched the constitution in order to give it to them; stretched, hell he completely rewrote their arguments before the court for them in his opinion in order to give them their victory. It is not a Tax; you can’t levy a tax against something that hasn’t happened. You tax goods and services not behavior. In this case Roberts proclaimed the Regime had the right to Tax Behavior; what a crock!


The only thing that makes any sense out of all this and this is not in any way justification for his actions; was that Roberts fell victim to the pressure from not only the Regime but their State Run media Pravda as well. He listened to them as they threatened his legacy. They convinced him that siding with the Liberal Regime on this landmark decision would give him a place in history right up there with Chief Justice John Marshall who authored what many constitutional scholars view as the most important American judicial opinion of all time: Marbury v. Madison (1803), which established the supremacy of the Court in legal judgments.


Or perhaps they convinced him that siding with the Regime on this one would give him and his court a place in history right up there with the Warren Court. Chief Justice Earl Warren wrote the majority opinion in some of the most famous cases: Brown v. Board of Education (1954) banned segregation in public schools; Miranda v. Arizona (1966) required that criminal defendants be informed of their rights to remain silent and to be represented by a lawyer; Loving v. Virginia (1967) struck down prohibitions on interracial marriage. The Warren Court was responsible for many decisions that brought great social change.


In my humble opinion in the end it all came down to Roberts’s ego. He sold out his convictions for a perceived place in history. Years from now he will be remembered as the Chief Justice who gave all Americans access to Healthcare. Something the Liberals have been trying to do for the past 50 plus years but until now weren’t able to get it by the Constitution. Roberts took his 30 pieces of silver from the Regime and stomped on the Constitution in order to shore up his legacy!

      I am aware SCOTUS job is to decide whether the law is constitutional, not whether it's a good law. The problem is when one side (ours) plays by the rules while the other side votes strictly upon ideological lines we lose. If both sides were capable of objectivity then the court would function as intended but when one side continually cheats you gotta play defense or lose the game. This ruling by Roberts just condemned the USA to travel the road to Serfdom because the Regime will get 4 more years to perpetrate their Feta Compli!

      I believe that Roberts was correct in his ruling, and I'm sorry to hear that you no longer think so. The SCOTUS' job is to decide whether the law is constitutional, not whether it's a good law. Roberts has already done his part in furthering the conservative cause, by (finally) limiting the Commerce Clause. If the goal is repeal, the aim should be towards Congress and the Exec.
