Response to SidDithers (Reply #10)

58. I hadn't commented on the thread because I didn't question that SCOTUS was the final arbiter.

I thought the mention of the Founders and ideals of resisting the aristocratic mindset we have been fighting for so long were important. It seems as if we are fighting the Civil War and even the Revolution over again in this country. It is due to Democrats not fighting as hard as they should to protect the hard-fought restrictions on these folks by FDR.

He ended with the conclusion we must remake Congress, or so I thought. That requires state by state activism, which the GOP has beat us on. It was just the tone of the spanking I didn't care for and I'm not sure why he said it that way. The first comment about Elleng seemed unnecessarily harsh and unproductive.

That's all I have to say, of course we can always do better and are willing to learn. Or else we wouldn't be here. Other than this, I have never disagreed with him on any subject and am mystified at the tone.
