    None of that is going to do a damn bit of good when the justice branch of the government doesnt do its job.

    Biggest problem americans have is 0 accountability.

    This is what happens when you vote Republican.

    You get a Supreme Court that is a wholly owned subsidiary of Corporate Greed, Inc.

    And when we vote Democrat we get.... what that is different? Nada. Other than a slightly different 'special interest'. Maybe it is time to review how SC judges are appointed. Radical!

    There are currently regulations on how much can be given to politicians and that they have to report gifts.

    The complication is in the Constitution: The United States Constitution explicitly provides for 'the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances'" in the First Amendment.

    The Warren Court's special interest was the People; the Robert's Court's special interest is business. Both Chief Justices were Republicans; why such a difference?
