The Communists / Democrats always harp on ... "But Democracy..." when they want to override the rights of others guaranteed in the constitution, but they are the first to demand that we stick to republic principles and a wide ranging view of rights when it's something they want.... just look at that court fiasco of "Gay marriage"....

Local governments that use the second amendment for toilet paper... no problem...
Some clerk that has an issue with issuing gay marriage certificates... lock them up in federal prison right away till they disavow their beliefs...

Have I mentioned today yet that I hate communists?

Purpose of our Republic IS to protect a minority of one.
That's exactly what the author cynically posits:

What if the whole purpose of an independent judiciary is to be anti-democratic? What if its job is to disregard politics? What if its duty is to preserve the liberties of the minority -- even a minority of one -- from the tyranny of the majority? What if that tyranny can come from unjust laws or a just law's unjust enforcement?

Napolitano tends to carry a pretty Liberal line.

He will generally run afoul of Trumpers when he notes that in their enthusiasm Trump can go a bot too far.

I know he irritates me at times but in genral he can be pretty full ahead forward on his Liberalism.

The court only, and I mean only, need decide if the government is staying inside its constitutional bounds or not and not invent shit like they do under the Commerce Clause. Obama care being a tax when it violates many parts of the constitution and is not a delegated power. Fuck the court, they will be the number one reason Americans will meet on a battle field and kill millions of each other, in the near future. The court is part of Justice in our country and is not to be trusted under any circumstances.
