ObamaCare: Consequences of Political Choices

The Supreme Court rules that the government can’t make you buy something, but it can punish you if you don’t.

Supreme Court Smacks Down Arrogant Union

In Knox Vs The Service Employees International Union (SEIU) the Supreme Court rebuked the fiercely partisan union for violating the free speech rights of non-members.  The ruling diminished the political power of government employee unions, and the Justices appeared to be offering to further diminish that power whenever someone brings them a relevant case.

Obama’s Version is Not Your Father’s Constitution

Since the President and the Democrats kicked off the healthcare debate in early 2009 the political left and the establishment media have sneered dismissively at those of us who insisted the Constitution did not authorize Congress or the Executive to assume the new powers in ObamaCare.

Court Rules In Favor of Gun Ownership Rights

On Monday the Supreme Court published its second landmark Second Amendment, gun rights decision in modern times.  The news is good, both for individual rights and for the Constitution.

Supreme Court: Which Obama Do You Believe?

The Next President is virtually certain to be called upon to appoint at least two Supreme Court Justices.  Barack Obama has dramatically contradicted himself on the type of Justices he would appoint.
