Which should be taken as a warning to arrogant Supreme Court Justices and those seeking political coup.


The opinion held this language:

Quote:
“Our consideration is limited to the present circumstances,” the majority famously said, “for the problem of equal protection in election processes generally presents many complexities.”

That sentence, translated from high legal jargon into English, was often taken to mean this: The decision was a ticket for one ride only. It was not a precedent. It was a ruling, yes, but it was not law.
from the article cited above.

That language means that the case is sui generis, the legal version of a "one off." It was NOT intended to be cited, which was good, because the case itself was a huge overreach for the Supremes, because they took to themselves powers given only to Congress regarding elections.

For that reason, the Court knew, and inserted the language.

That it has been cited does not mean that it was intended to be cited. That's all I'm saying, and as precedent, it basically stands for what courts ought never do again. Ever. violin

You could not write nor sell a novel with this kind of stuff in it. But ficiton is not supposed to be reality . They will support him, because if he is elected Republicans will have power, and power is everything.

the plan in jan 2011 was for states to deal with it i.e. there was no plan

it is hard for me to believe they actually have a plan now ... it is probably just an extension of their previous plans of allowing the free market to continue to do what they have been doing for 60 years ... they will put some lipstick on the donkey and present as a quarter horse

i await in anticipation
