Update: Left Coast Rebel hits it out of the park.
I know I've always said economics underpins everything in a country, but what underpins economics? Core values. One such core value that has ensured the United States has stayed on the path to prosperity is liberty. Liberty today has been dealt a potentially fatal blow, though the fatal moment may still lie much further in the future. This sets a scary precedent in terms of the Commerce Clause and what is allowable.It's all about the values, my friends. A nation of looters will wash over your court decisions like a tsunami no matter which way the judges rule.
