Fascinating complexity in the decision written by Chief Justice John Roberts upholding the Affordable Care Act!
First of all, Justice Roberts, a conservative Republican appointee, voted with the High Court’s “liberal” justices to create the 5-4 majority upholding the law. Republicans and conservatives across the U.S. hysterically called him a “traitor.” Wait. Isn’t a patriot’s first loyalty to the United States of America, not to any political party?
The frightening possibility is that some partisans no longer see loyalty to the U.S. as a patriot’s first loyalty. It’s possible that some of the more extreme Tea Party loyalists have already seceded from the United States in their own troubled minds.
