    on micro issues.

    Frustrating too, but the macro view is very simple:

    Do we allow the GOP to advance their agenda or not?  Voting Democrat denies them that.

    Our party isn't perfect, and the economic norms toward regression are strong.  This isn't an easy fight.

    Why make it worse?

    SCOTUS, thanks to Roberts, can and absolutely will legislate from the bench.  That mandates some basic things, one of them being a focus on the court.  

    Wouldn't it be horrible to actually get Progressive legislation only to have it rendered moot by a contrived court case?

    You know it will happen, unless we take steps to prevent it.

    Great Diary

      rendered moot by a contrived court case.  Just waiting for the healthcare bill to get there, because that there is one of the most contrived cases I've seen in my life.

      All it takes is security in your own civil rights to make you complacent.
