  •  First of all, we have an election in 1.5 years (0+ / 0-)

    to determine the composition of the House, so your time horizon is a little bit myopic.  Secondly, if it remained under GOP control, a large part of the reason would be Citizens United, the VRA ruling, and rulings in defense of gerrymandering.  Thirdly, I've never seen you or most of the FPers articulate a step-by-step plan for anything you've advocated.  You've mostly left it to people like me to do that for you.

    Moreover, I've explained this before and I explained it again in this diary.  The movement to impeach is a beginning, not an end.  It doesn't have to result in impeachment to achieve important objectives.  It warns the Roberts Court to stop or at least slow down the pace of Constitutional deconstruction; it creates a grassroots and judicial awareness that a court can undermine its own legitimacy by a corrupt partisan ruling; it sets the stage for increasingly vocal reactions to future abusive rulings that do occur; and it finally, finally begins to fight back against conservatives who have never and will never be limited in their tactics against us.

    Sign the petition to demand a law-abiding Supreme Court.

      Then you haven't been paying attention.

      Don't tell me what you believe, show me what you do and I will tell you what you believe.
