Thomas or Scalia should be Chief Justice.
You took the words out of my keyboard.
The way to fix campaign fiance is to be completely transparent...
Any donation for any amount must be reported to the FEC within 24 hours with all the pertinent information except any personal information...
Any campaign that fails to report any transaction is fined 100x the amount....
With that system anybody can see who is giving to whom....
If this line were written by a conservative writer about a black liberal justice, the screams of racism would be headlined in every major paper, and on every msm TV station.
BLACK MAN DRAGS...
Thomas’ written opinions are also the tightest and most solid. No sophistry or flowery prose for Clarance, just straight up legal analysis. Issue, law, application and conclusion.
Pray for Justice Thomas.
until Roberts was blackmailed for his illegally Irish adopted kids or some early bone smuggling, he seemed like a good conservative bet.
funny how things change when vetting isn’t properly done.
From Scalia’s words, he is often influenced by Thomas’ arguments and positions.
You can't even express disagreement with Obama's policies without someone suggesting ulterior motives.
Yes. Even where there is disagreement on what the ruling should be, you at least know where the line is...what actions you might take that would comply with the ruling, and which would not.
Sandra Day O’Connor was legendary for the unnecessary vagueness, blurry lines, and double talk in her rulings. Some of the current judges follow suit.
Respectfully disagree. The information you provide the FEC is reported to the IRS. It will then be used to persecute patriots by denying them health care and harassing them using tax law. Further the first amendment doesn’t require it. No reporting is my position. Period. Resist the beast.
It can still be hidden in times of transparency. Take the Obama campaigns.
A billionaire communist sympathizer can purchase $250K in “Visa” gift cards anywhere in the world; all in $25 of funds.
Those cards can then be distributed through an Operations Network to individual American citizens on the street. They are told, “You can spend $10 but $15 must be sent to the Obama Campaign.” At the same time, the Obama Campaign (acting on a suggestion from the Operative Network) makes a policy that doesn’t record personal info for VISA/MC/AmEx card-based donations of $20 or less.
Voila! Soros contributes $150K to Obama.
Obama is the one who is not very bright. He is usually lost without his teleprompter. He got through the Presidential debates because both McCain and Romney were easy on him and Romney also had Candy Crowley, the moderator, sticking her nose into the debate.
Thomas was the best pick for the court ever.
There is something special about black conservatives. They are more dependable than any other. I can only assume the need to constantly defend why they are conservative hones their beliefs, while the constant attacks from the left and in particular other blacks drives then further right and solidifies their positions.
Yes but the law was never obeyed anyway. If an illegal contribution was made, it was kept during the critical cash flow need and then in an apology returned. There was no penalty for holding the money during the time of critical cash flow need.
The broken law that needs to be remedied with the death penalty for the offenders has to do with using the government as club to render senseless those attempting to follow the law. The offenses are a grave assault on the republic
What would be truly interesting is a study of cases where Scalia and Thomas did NOT agree...there can’t be many of those, but it would be a challenge for conservatives to see the differing reasons for those instances.
I didn’t care for George HW Bush, but this was his was one of his best decisions-—like picking Dan Quayle to be VP
No reporting is a bad idea. The obama campaign in 2008 reportedly had massive amounts of small donations coming via the internet using prepaid credit cards as well as standard cards. But the campaign disabled security systems on their credit card authorizations which matched names with addresses. So the campaign was able to accept contributions from overseas from donors who may or may not have been Americans. If anonymous campaign cash flows, leftist campaigns will be awash in money from our enemies abroad.
