    is no longer liberal vs conservative, but independent judiciary advocates vs rubber stamp judges.

    What I predict is that no matter how many puppet judges the fringe right-wing thinks they can find, allegiance to the profession of law, that almost all of these judges have dedicated their lives to, will outweight the fanatical desires of the fringe.  Other than a very few judges like Clarance Thomas, most judges want a clear separation of power with judicial due process against a backdrop of constitutional law to be the manner that disputes get settled in America.  Any group trying to undue this precedent will be exposed even by their choice of judges.  Now when that happens, as has happened in the Schiavo fiasco, the fanatics are then put on trial with the stakes being constitutional government versus fanatical beliefs.  Once this is out in the open, just where do you think the majority of Americans will likely come down:

    Making America a theocracy with the right wing christian evangelists in charge?

    Keeping a constitutional democracy with clear separations of powers?

    Political censorship is the root of all evil! It is the antithesis to a functional democracy!!
