As I see it, with all the major changes that we experienced in the last few years and in the last few days with the Supreme Court rulings, I would suggest that Congress should consider another major change in convoluted and messed up legal system that our nation finds itself in. I really believe it started in 1973 with Roe V. Wade and the 7-2 political decision that has led to the millions of babies being murdered.
All the doctors and scientist and screaming women can't change the fact that these abortions are nothing more than taking a life, and the court decided that it was OK. Now we have the extremely important issues of gay marriage and Prop 8, in which the people were told that their voice didn't matter, that a judge knew more than they did. And the Supreme Court now has agreed with that in principle.
I propose that the Congress seriously consider passing a law that the Supreme Court be held to their decision, making exactly, as the 12 members of a jury panel, that there must be a unanimous decision. If not, then no action should be taken, and no more of this 7-9, or 5-4 political stuff.
Over the years I have watched the decisions handed down and the results have appeared to me to be mostly 5-4 with few exceptions. This appears to me to be nothing more than politics: liberal versus conservatives, not legal minds versus legal minds.
Personally, I lay blame to all of the problems our nation has right at the feet of our Supreme Court. But the Supreme Court would probably find the law unconstitutional by a 5-4 vote anyway.
