Our revolutionary Supreme Court and the rise of Socialist America

Jeffrey T. Kuhner We now live in post-constitutional America. The rule of law has been replaced with arbitrary centralized government. The republic is dead.

It’s the oil, stupid: The coming energy revolution

Sanders   [See Archive] If we can get your attention off Dred Scott II — the Supreme Court decision on health care costs with its byzantine political implications — something perhaps as fundamental for the U.S. and world economies is happening: a second fossil fuel revolution.
