Abortion is heading back to the Supreme Court. Contrary to the panic of some pro-choice activist friends of mine - the SCOTUS has been on a Federalist binge in recent years and will likely uphold Roe vs Wade or even make it stronger. However, as we have witnessed with Obamacare, NDAA, and marijuana - States are smelling the blood of an overexerted Federal government; and such a ruling will usher in another wave of nullification that makes unlikely allies out of cannabis enthusiasts and pro-life evangelicals who both resent mind-numbing Federal standardization.
My views on
abortion are complicated and I won't dilute this post with them. But
this REALLY doesn't bode well for Obama groupies whose faith in
Federalism makes them incapable of logical inquiry. Read a history book -
the taken-for-granted hyper-Federalization is only about 40 years old;
and completely unsustainable.
