    THE US SUPREME COURT - AN ESTABLISHMENT DEUS EX MACHINA
    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

    The founders created the Supreme Court as a deus ex machina

    that would perpetuate and prevent substantial changes in the constitution
    and that would protect the establishment it perpetuates.

    For example,
    the US Constitution, though hailed as a liberal document for its time,
    was so employed by the US Supreme Court
    that the freeing of the slaves, an important civil war goal,
    was not completed until the middle of the last century---

    Convinced of its own supremacy,
    without any constitutional check upon its power,
    and without fear of the executive, the congress or the people,
    the court has recently declared that
    "money is speech"
    and
    "corporations are people",

    decisions that enable the ruling establishment
    to enable foreign and big money interests to drown out the voice of the people
    and thus deny to the people
    the right of the people
    to play a role
    in their own governance

    Supreme Court cases may be even more heated this term...

    Supreme Court faces another momentous term
    Thursday, September 27, 2012 - It would be hard to top the historic significance of the term that just ended, but Supreme Court watchers say the justices will confront some momentous questions once again when their next term officially begins Monday.

    Supreme Court may limit use of race in college admissions
    — More than a half-century after the Supreme Court ordered the University of Texas to admit a black man to its law school, the sprawling live-oak-and-limestone campus is again the site of a monumental battle over the use of race in university admissions.
