    Ken, today's SCOTUS decision is the end of small government.

    How so? It appears to me that the SCOTUS decision counters an overreaching executive branch and places habeas corpus back where it belongs.

    We need more people like Ron Paul to run for President. Who knows? Maybe after 8 years of Bush and 4 years of Obama the country will finally listen to people like Paul.

    Ken, it was both houses of congress, along with the executive branch, that approved the opening of Gitmo, and approved the treatment of prisoners. Pelosi actually thought waterboarding didn't go far enough. I know you know all of this. So for the supreme court to overrule this now ? They should have overruled it before the invasion, don'tcha think ? Now it looks like a cheap political stunt.

    Anyway, the scotus proved it can override both houses and the president. hardly a victory.

    We'll never have limited government so long as the state itself is allowed to follow the rules that govern it in a selective manner. All the state needs to slip out of it's constitutional bonds is an "emergency" something which there is no apparent shortage of either real or promulgated. Gotten to the point now where the state openly scoffs at the constitution and derides anyone who would follow it.
