The “Supreme” Court is being stacked with appointments by the oligarch loving Republican Party. “The Republican Party gets much of its money from the extremely rich who stand to benefit from drastic reduction in government regulations and taxes.”
The Federalist Society who vetted these right wing “Supreme” Court justices claims to follow the original intent of the U.S. Constitution but the pattern that follows is a disregard for maintaining our former Democracy and sliding it into a plutocracy. This is because the “Supreme” Court now favors business interests over the collective interests of the people.
The Federalist Society has a long list of Supreme Court members and with it expect diminished collective rights:
- John Glover Roberts Jr.
- Antonin Gregory Scalia (died)
- Samuel Anthony Alito Jr.
- Clarence Thomas
- Neil Gorsuch
Trumps’ first “Supreme” Court appointment: Neil Gorsuch
Alphonse Maddin was driving a trailer truck in Illinois, January 2009. The outside temperature was 14 degrees below zero. The brakes on his rig failed. He called the company to send out help. He waited in an unheated cab for hours but no help arrived. He unhitched his trailer and drove to safety. The truck company had a rule that any driver who leaves his load unattended gets fired. Mr. Maddin had a choice to make, freeze to death or lose his job. He lost his job as a result of seeking safety. He appealed his firing to the Labor Department. Six judges decided he should not be fired. The only judge who disagreed was Neil Gorsuch.
Trump’s second “Supreme” Court appointment: Brett Kavanaugh
Brett Kavanaugh appears to favor the interests of large corporations over the interests of the common man and women. He appears to not support the definition of democracy, the interests of the whole population over the interests of large corporations. This fact can be found in his decision against net neutrality where he stated that net neutrality regulations were unlawful and infringes on the Internet service providers.
Plutocracy: A plutocracy or plutarchy is a society that is ruled or controlled by people of great wealth or income.
Democracy: a system of government by the whole population or all the eligible members of a state, typically through elected representatives.
