Roberts is a Bush 2 appointee. Bush 2 was in the Texas Air National Guard but never saw combat. "Mission Accomplished", Bush 2.
Roberts knows something about the constitution and history and is concerned with his place in history.
He did what he did so that scholars will say he was a good Chief Justice, and a not a hack.
Section 2 of the 14th Amendment bases Congressional representation on the number of citizens in each State. If the dummies working for PODS trump knew anything about the Constitution they would tell the SCOTUS to go F___ off on this issue and include the citizenship question.Which has nothing to do with this, but you didn’t know that.
See that's the thing that Roberts is s trying to avoid, spouting the fucking nonsense that you do, and looking like some internet moron.It’s irrelevant if Justice Roberts believes adding the question “appears to have been contrived.” He is being a "hack" by second guessing the wisdom and/or legitimacy of a policy making decision as opposed to whether or not it is allowed by our Constitution.
It is not a Justices’ job to second guess the wisdom or legitimacy of legislative acts and policy making decisions. Its only job is to decide if such acts are within the four walls of the Constitution.
In regard to this assumption of power by Justice Roberts [second guessing legislative acts and policy making decisions], Justice Stone reminds us that:
”The power of courts to declare a statute unconstitutional is subject to two guiding principles of decision which ought never to be absent from judicial consciousness. One is that courts are concerned only with the power to enact statutes, not with their wisdom. The other is that while unconstitutional exercise of power by the executive and legislative branches of the government is subject to judicial restraint, the only check upon our own exercise of power is our own sense of self-restraint. For the removal of unwise laws from the statute books appeal lies, not to the courts, but to the ballot and to the processes of democratic government.” U.S. v. Butler, 297 U.S. 1, 78-79 (1936)
Additionally, the court in Hillis v. Department of Ecology, 131 Wash. 2d 373, 932 P.2d 139 (1997) pointed out:
”Just because we [the courts] do not think the legislators have acted wisely or responsibly does not give us the right to assume their duties or to substitute our judgment for theirs.”
And, in ELDRED et al. v. ASHCROFT, ATTORNEY GENERAL (2003) the court unmistakably confirmed:
……we are not at liberty to second-guess congressional determinations and policy judgments of this order, however debatable or arguably unwise they may be…The wisdom of Congress’ action, however, is not within our province to second guess.
And finally, Justice Black, quite eloquently addressed the issue as follows:
"The public welfare demands that constitutional cases must be decided according to the terms of the Constitution itself, and not according to judges’ views of fairness, reasonableness, or justice." – Justice Hugo L. Black (U.S. Supreme Court Justice, 1886 - 1971) Source: Lecture, Columbia University, 1968
The bottom line is, Justice Obamacare-Roberts has repeatedly violated the most fundamental cannons and principles of our constitutionally limited system of government and the fundamental rules of constitutional construction by interfering with a legitimate question being replaced on our census form . . . “Is this person a citizen of the United States?”
Without a Fifth Column Media and Yellow Journalism [ourMSM], the crisis at our southern border would never have grown to what now amounts to an outright invasion and threatens the general welfare of the United States.
Not even closeSection 2 of the 14th Amendment bases Congressional representation on the number of citizens in each State. If the dummies working for PODS trump knew anything about the Constitution they would tell the SCOTUS to go F___ off on this issue and include the citizenship question.
The penalty is based on the number of citizens. You can't impose the penalty unless you know how many citizens there are.Not even close
Here is the text of section 2 of the 14th Amendment
Representatives shall be apportioned among the several States according to their respective numbers, counting the whole number of persons in each State, excluding Indians not taxed. But when the right to vote at any election for the choice of electors for President and Vice President of the United States, Representatives in Congress, the Executive and Judicial officers of a State, or the members of the Legislature thereof, is denied to any of the male inhabitants of such State, being twenty-one years of age, and citizens of the United States, or in any way abridged, except for participation in rebellion, or other crime, the basis of representation therein shall be reduced in the proportion which the number of such male citizens shall bear to the whole number of male citizens twenty-one years of age in such State.
Representation is based on “the whole number of persons” in the state. Not citizens.
What it does have is a stick to insure that the states allow each person to vote. If a state does not allow someone to vote then the number of persons shall be reduced by the number of people they are not allowing to vote.
So if KY has 1,000,000 people living in the state (citizens and non citizens) but they decide not to let women vote and the number of voting age women in the state is 250,000 then the state will only be counted as having 750,000 people thus (possibly) reducing the number of Representatives they have in the House.
So, once again you show your complete and utter ignorance.Which has nothing to do with this, but you didn’t know that.
