Thank you for this post! So many bad takes based on what someone read on twitter as a headline.Not really.
The Court is involved because there exists no Federal law governing districting.
One can be passed.
Moreover, they didn’t say that Gerrymandering is legal, they said that SCOTUS can’t scotch something outright.
And that there are Federalism questions. Therefore a State Court could rule against gerrymandering.
This is still not set in stone. A New Democratic Congress can pass anti-gerrymandering legislation based on Federal jurisdiction over Federal elections.
I admire your belief that the Supreme Court is apolitical.I also am getting tired of everyone saying the SCOTUS is pro republican. They are pro constitution. It is not up to SCOTUS to create policies. That is what congress is for. I feel at times the left wants to make SCOTUS an area they can get laws put in place that don’t go through Congress.
Take abortion. All congress has to do is less a law that make it legal.
Do you have an example? Do you disagree that the courts job is make rulings on laws, not create laws? It seems like the left wants to have them create laws vs. having to legislate and pass laws.I admire your belief that the Supreme Court is apolitical.
I'm not buying that for one second, however. The conflicts with Clarence Thomas' wife alone would send shockwaves through the Continental Congress.
This is just applying a right-wing talking point (lefties want "activist judges" to make laws instead of interpreting the constitution as written in the 1700s) to AZ's comments when it isn't relevant to what he's saying.Do you have an example?

Here are just a few examples of Thomas' conflicts.Do you have an example? Do you disagree that the courts job is make rulings on laws, not create laws? It seems like the left wants to have them create laws vs. having to legislate and pass laws.
I am curious though. What do you think the role of the SCOTUS is?Here are just a few examples of Thomas' conflicts.
Also, for what its worth, I don't appreciate you telling me what "the left" believes. This is a straw man.
Once again, that type of stuff just furthers my point about how those in support of Trump use logical fallacy when discussing issues.
This is...absurd.If you want to know how far on the left have gone look at the recent border bill that was passed. It was a bi-partisan deal in the Senate, voted 84-8 in favor of it. The house ends up passing it but there is so much kicking and screaming from those on the left. To me it just shows those on the far left have no plan or want to meet half way on anything. It is "our way" or the wrong way. The bill passed bu a large majority in the house as well.
I for one love that we were able to get a bill passed with so much support on both sides. It gives me hope that the government can function.
So you agree there is an issue at the boarder? I see this a good step to solving the issue. It’s nice to both sides support this. This hot passed with a very large majority. I take that as a win and a sign there could be more bi partisan support to fix it.This is...absurd.
The reason the left is upset is because it just gave the government a $4.5B blank check with no assurances that kids won't still be living in the utter terror of the concentration camps they're currently being housed in.
The left has nothing BUT plans to stop these atrocities at the border, and the right supports people who do things like this:
We already know the end, Moderate Dems caved to Trump who is going to continue hurting children and keeping them in these shit conditions to please his base.
No plan for the migrants, no plan for the undocumented living in this country, no legislative pathway to getting "a wall."
Nothing, except failure. Catastrophic failure and not an ounce of good faith negotiation.
Both-sidesing this issue is absurd and not consistent with facts.
This got passed out of desperation for the crisis Trump has single handedly created at the border.So you agree there is an issue at the boarder? I see this a good step to solving the issue.

How much do you want to bet that the Democrats get played, and Pence never lives up to this?Her retreat came after Vice President Mike Pence gave Ms. Pelosi private assurances that the administration would abide by some of the restrictions she had sought. They included a requirement to notify lawmakers within 24 hours after the death of a migrant child in government custody, and a 90-day time limit on children spending time in temporary intake facilities, according to a person familiar with the discussions.
How did Trump create the crisist? Did he tell everyone it was ok to come to the US illegally? Or was that the Democrats and the sanctuary cities? Hard to blame Trump for more people trying to come to the US.This got passed out of desperation for the crisis Trump has single handedly created at the border.
The left wanted protections for the migrant children currently being housed in concentration camps.
How much do you want to bet that the Democrats get played, and Pence never lives up to this?
Trump's DOJ argued in court that these kids don't need toothbrushes or soap. They certainly are not credible, nor trustworthy.
