The probable outcome of the Supreme Court examining Chicago's gun ban's constitutionality under the Fourteenth Amendment is scaring the left. The Brady bunch lost in D.C., and it looks likely that they'll lose everywhere else.
One opinion columnist suggests that it's time for the Supreme Court to be expanded, and that this is the president (and the time) to do it. After all, the anti-America agenda of the transnational progressivists (trannies) must be protected at all costs.
They, like most of the rest of the country's voters, have totally forgotten history. FDR tried to do this in 1935, with his attempts to increase his votes on the court by adding two votes to the four that were already in his favor.
He failed. Miserably.
Most of the American citizenry were violently opposed to much of his unconstitutional exercise of power--unfortunately, much of his agenda was upheld by a Supreme Court that started out similarly opposed, but came around through fear of the economy collapsing.
Obama is looking more and more like he's following in FDR's footsteps, rather than Lincoln's. Like FDR, Obama started out his first term in office America's golden boy. He was supposed to, like FDR, fix an economic mess left for him by a predecessor. He's tried to, like FDR, collect more power unto himself and his administration, by means constitutional or otherwise. Like FDR, he is opposed by a majority on the Supreme Court.
Unlike FDR, the American people are already waking up to smell the pile of horse shit they put behind the big desk in the oval office. It's happening fast enough that, without more unconstitutional seizing of power, he's not likely to be re-elected even the now-constitutionally-limited once more.
