Default The day the right to assemble died

At the US supreme court, Chief Justice John Roberts sides with the 4 liberal justices to rule that Governors can suspend the right to assemble for worship.

Observation: Roberts has completely morphed to become the new Anthony Kennedy swing voter, as many liberal commentators suggested he would.

Just my opinion here... I believe that it is a "power" thing... Remember that Kennedy was appointed by Reagan after the Bork nomination didn't work out... Roberts was appointed by Bush II... One would think that both would be conservative minded judges, and to a certain point they are/were... But... If you think about it, to put yourself in the position of the swing vote on a narrowly split court puts one in a uniquely powerful position... The swing vote is the "decision maker" in all tightly contested cases... Food for thought on my part...

Thanks.. Can't say that it's the truth... Just something I think about when I view the world of today... Power affects all people in different ways, but it does affect all people... It's just a fact of the human condition...
