On Perpetual Peril As A Necessary Attribute Of Republics

07 February 2015 @ 17:17

In a recent post by William Jacobson [tip of the fedora to Darleen Click — whose remarks are well-worth reading on this] on the efforts by the Left In America to intimidate the Supreme Court into ruling their way on the Obamacare case before them, King v. Burwell, along with his usual spot-on analysis, he quotes from a recent article by Supreme Court ‘expert’ NYT reporter, Linda Greenhouse, entitled: The Supreme Court at Stake: Overturning Obamacare Would Change the Nature of the Supreme Court.  The poor gal is practically having a nervous breakdown over the possibility that SCOTUS may deal a fatal blow to Socialist Healthcare.

Mzzz. Greenhouse Gas writes:

…Not only the Affordable Care Act but the court itself is in peril as a result.

Every branch, every department, of the government should always feel in peril of the wrath of the Sovereign People, at whose pleasure they serve [and get paid and get benefits from].

This is the way Constitutional Republics must work if they are to work.

But this requires that a certain number, a certain percentage, of said Sovereign People pay attention to what the government is doing.

While those of us who work for the government [I work at the state level] should always feel the cold, determined breath of The Sovereignty on the back of our necks, they, in turn, must never forget that Freedom and Ordered Liberty are always imperiled, because the darker forces of Human Nature are always lurking in the shadows ready to pounce-on and enslave or murder those who wish to live as Free Men and Women in a Society governed by Virtue and a decent respect for the Past and the understanding that we have a responsibility to our Posterity the sacred rights granted to us by The Supreme Legislator Of The Universe.

…It will bring an everlasting mark of infamy on the present generation, enlightned as it is, if we should suffer [‘(t)he liberties of our Country, the freedom of our civil constitution’] to be wrested from us by violence without a struggle; or be cheated out of them by the artifices of false and designing men….

—Samuel Adams, writing as ‘CANDIDUS’ in the Boston Gazette, 14 October 1771

    Steny Hoyer had an article at USA Today titled ”Court Must Defend Obamacare Subsidies ”.
    Of course I didn’t read it as the authors name and the title said it all. Which is that the Court had a responsibility to prevent the undoing of poorly written legislation. This notion is of course preposterous. In the coming weeks leading up to oral arguments in March and the again in June when it’s time to publish their ruling we’ll he several specious arguments as to why the Court must rule against the plaintive. All of them will be irrelevant to the case. Even arguments as to legislative intent are not relevant is this case as the wording of the law isn’t in dispute
