    I doubt anyone will trust justice in the federal courts.

    It's hard to see where this plays out in the long run, but I'm guessing collapse of the federal government.  I'm not exaggerating: there's a lot of evidence that in order to have democracy, you must first have a respected and impartial court system.

    When you lose that, the government rules only by fear, force, and occasionally bribery.  And such governments are generally unstable.

    Read pp. 1-7 of Krugman's _The Great Unraveling_ (available from Google Books). NOW.
