    It's easy to make the case that there is nothing that has done more to damage the proper functioning of our democracy than the system of legalized bribery and graft that now dominates the American political process.

    That is certainly a legitimate concern, for both those who favor those policies and those who oppose them.

    The Supreme Court acted Monday to keep Texas' 19 abortion clinics open, amid a legal fight that threatens to close more than half of them.

    1 hr ago | Townhall

    Last week's Supreme Court rulings on Obamacare and same-sex marriage were enormously dispiriting for reasons beyond the substantive issues of socialized medicine and same-sex marriage. I couldn't be more opposed to socialized medicine, which I believe is the endgame of Obamacare, and I am opposed to the societal sanctioning of same-sex marriage, but those are not my greatest concerns with these two rulings.

    It took nine decades for Congress and the states to amend the Constitution to allow for the direct election of U.S. senators. Of course, there was no formal constitutional amendment in the Arizona redistricting case-just enough votes at the Supreme Court to make it happen without a long, arduous public discussion.

    Liberals on the Supreme Court pulled off the ultimate feat this term: shifting the bench to the left, often without even needing to pick up a pen. With major rulings on civil rights cases, including decisions to back same-sex marriage nationwide and uphold Obamacare, the Roberts court offered liberals more than they had dared hope when the term opened last October.

    You might think the gays, the liberals and the mellowed-out folks who groove on kittens and little living things would be content to lie in a patch of sunlight in the corner and purr together. Chief Justice John Roberts told them it was OK to celebrate, though it's not clear why a chief justice who said the Constitution had nothing to do with the gay marriage decision would urge anyone to celebrate setting the Constitution aside.

    Now that the Supreme Court has imposed its edict on the land, the question is whether religious institutions and people of faith will still be permitted to act on moral beliefs that the court has portrayed as bigoted and deeply wounding.
