” Those civil consequences—and the public approval that conferring the name of marriage evidences—can perhaps have adverse social effects, but no more adverse than the effects of many other controversial laws. So it is not of special importance to me what the law says about marriage. It is of overwhelming importance, however, who it is that rules me. Today’s decree says that my Ruler, and the Ruler of 320 million Americans coast-to-coast, is a majority of the nine lawyers on the Supreme Court. The opinion in these cases is the furthest extension in fact— and the furthest extension one can even imagine—of theCourt’s claimed power to create “liberties” that the Consti-tution and its Amendments neglect to mention. This practice of constitutional revision by an unelected committee of nine, always accompanied (as it is today) by extravagant praise of liberty, robs the People of the most important liberty they asserted in the Declaration of Independence and won in the Revolution of 1776: the freedom to govern themselves” Justice Scalia in his dissent
There it is and boy did he say a mouthful. Scalia knows how big this one is and that there are going to be consequences.
The Govt. via the supreme court has just repudiated Christianity in our country.
God is no longer the giver of law, the Govt. is via supreme court rulings.
Forget the mumbo jumbo written in that book of yours the SCOTUS will decide what is what.
You know, just like those inalienable rights endowed on you by your creator.
The SCOTUS gives you your rights….Or takes them away
Bow down now before your new masters
Your new Gods.
Is this enough? Has not every insult been hurled at us? Have we not petitioned and entreated our grievances according to law ? Have we not voted representatives to office only to be boldly betrayed?
Have we not time and time again been sold, almost as chattel, to lobbyists and monied interests who fill the pockets of those we elect?
Is this not enough when men wearing robes put themselves above God and millennium of holy tradition?
Is this not cause enough, the total sum of the injuries and insults that we have endured, to spur you to action?
If not then no cause will ever be great enough.
You will endure the chains of servitude imposed by them and gladly at that, if you balk now
I make the case that our liberty is already gone and hard tyranny comes next
Our choices have been made for us both by fate and men and the way forward is clear
Look around you, is that freedom? Is that what our forefathers died for?
We must now be bold and decisive
There will be no better time coming
No set of circumstances more opportune in the level of outrage provoked
Our masters have spoken and we must let them know that we are not happy
We need to put a gauntlet across their faces as they have ours
But we must unite and have a unified face of resistance
Reblogged this on Cold Dead Hands Days and commented:
Just about time to get off the bench eh?
Yeah, just about. I have been ready since ’09, I just don’t want to be the only one standing on the field
The field is everywhere. See Iraqistan. ML
I don’t think you will be the only one. Look at what happened with the Bundy situation. People have had enough.
And then some. I plan on being im Huntsville on July 29 with Travis Truitt
“But we must unite and have a unified face of resistance”
Potential resistors are heavily factionated, from GOP party poopers who think they can vote tyranny out, to the halcyons who long for 1950s America, to libertarians, to anarchists. None of them like each other.
Without an emergency of sufficient magnitude (such as the Bundy standoff) to force these groups to set aside their differences, the next revolution will not be a neat two sided conflict: it will be a total mess. The Bundy standoff was unusual: usually they send in the swat team and shoot anyone who looks like a threat, and forget about asking questions. By the time of the next emergency, it may be too late.
Divide and conquer strategies need to be spotted and stamped out. Agreement to disagree needs to be encouraged.
