Rush Limbaugh was in the Opinion Journal talking conservative politics. I largely enjoyed his post, dispute it’s overwhelmingly obtuse look at conservatism.

“Abortion is only one of countless areas in which a mere nine lawyers in robes have imposed their personal policy preferences on the rest of us. The court has conferred due process rights on terrorists detained at Guantanamo Bay and benefits on illegal immigrants. It has ruled that animated cyberspace child pornography is protected speech, but certain broadcast ads aired before elections are illegal; it has held that the Ten Commandments can’t be displayed in a public building, but they can be displayed outside a public building; and the court has invented rationales to skirt the Constitution, such as using foreign law to strike down juvenile death penalty statutes in over a dozen states.”

Now correct me if I am wrong but has not the supreme court been in a conservative majority for a long time now, if not for most of what I would assume to be the aforementioned relatively new decisions. Another reason why I don’t vote; the decisions that truly change our way of life are made by bureaucrats.
