So you want to know real political power?

First rule of Politics, no matter what side of the debate you’re on, make sure you disguise the debate as anything but what it really is, a struggle for power. If you think it’s about anything but power keep drinking the Kool-Aid.

Second rule of politics, when the people don’t do what you want go to court and get the “right” judge to over rule the public will and set a “precedent”. This is the current De Facto standard for politic power debates and it’s crystal clear.

Want proof you say, cool. Look at the last 10-20 bills passed by Congress, most get no coverage and the rest get some level of politically correct opinion pieces cut and pasted on the “news” pages or “news” TV channels. But let the SCOTUS make some rulings and you have the entire spectrum of political activists ranting, raving, working themselves into extremely complex knots to deal with the results of those highest of high rulers of the land.

It is un-deniable that the rule of law has over taken the rule of the majority in our process and unless we do something about it soon their will be no turning back.
