Consider this ruling a wake-up call: the most important domestic power the president possesses is to nominate justices. Voters must choose presidents who will select nominees who will defend, not sabotage liberty, and elect members of the U.S. Senate who will provide oversight, not a rubber stamp.
Congress, which has formally refused to authorize these faith-based offices, must now act to formally defund them. That is the only remedy left for this grotesque miscarriage of justice. Let Congress pick up the ball that the Supreme Court has so irresponsibly fumbled.
What did Stalin say?- or not say? Something like- "It's not the people who vote that count. It's the people who count the votes."- but this has a nice continuity to it. http://urbanlegends.about.com/od/dubiou ... _quote.htm
