As Evil as ‘Dred Scott’: Supreme Court Rewards Illegal “Sanctuaries” With More Votes in Congress, Electoral College.

Last Thursday, ?the U.S. Supreme Court voted 5-4 to destroy yet another key element of our Constitution and the rule of law.? It ordered our President to count illegal aliens as citizens in next year?s census.

Chief Justice Roberts, a George Bush ?progressive? Republican, again voted with the four radical Democrats.? Roberts wrote that it’s OK to count illegal aliens separately–but only if the President does it for “good” reasons.?? Robert ruled that to count illegal aliens separately, President Trump and his officials would have to go through years of additional litigation which would include more endless demands for documents and testimony about private conversations among officials?the last thing America needs right now.

This goes against hundreds of years of established law.? “Every census between 1820 and 2000 (with exception of 1840) asked at least some of the population about their citizenship or place of birth”.? The four conservatives on the Supreme Court correctly said if judges could set aside any lawful and Constitutional action of an elected official because somebody claims the official did it for a bad reason, appointed judges, rather than elected officials will soon be making almost all key decisions in our country.

In 2012, Justice Roberts also ignored the Constitution and established law to vote with the four Democrats and uphold Obamacare in 2012.?? Obamacare is a federal law that for the first time forces every American (but not illegal aliens) to buy very expensive and ?politically correct? product sold by a handful of government approved insurance companies.??? It also forced every American to pay for procedures like abortions and sex-change operations that many disapprove of.

The census, or official counting of Americans every ten years, is found in Article I, Section 2 of our Constitution.? on 2. ?Its clear purpose is to give the people of every state fair representation in Congress and in choosing our President.

Every ten years, the number of members from each state in the House of Representatives ?is adjusted according to how many people live there.? In 1960, when New Jersey had no state debt, sales or income tax, we had 15 members.? We now have only 12 members of the House of Representatives after 50 years of high taxes and debt.? Meanwhile, North Carolina increased from 11 members of Congress in 1960 to 13 today.?? Florida increased from 12 in 1960 to 27 today.

The census also determines how many electoral votes each state gets in choosing our President.? Each state gets one electoral vote for each of its House members and two Senators.? New Jersey had 17 electoral votes in 1960.? Now we have 14.?? North Carolina went from 13 to 15 electoral votes.? Florida increased from 14 to 29.

Since 1962, the population count of this census also determines the voting power of each district in state, county, and local elections.?? When South Jersey grew with casino gambling, we got more state senators and assembly members.

During the past ?30 years, roughly 20 to 50 million foreigners illegally moved into the United States.?? More than a million more arrive every year. ?For many reasons, the great majority of these illegal foreigners (aliens) supported leftist/Islamic/hate-America leaders and political ideas in their home countries. ?Most support ?progressive?/socialist Democrats who share those same views here in America.?? Most illegal aliens also mistrust and dislike conservatives like us who embrace ?traditional American political ideas of individual rights and Constitutional, limited government.

Much of this is because of years of leftist, hate-America propaganda in their own languages here and in their home countries.?? Much is because we cannot communicate with them because we do not speak their languages, and are shut out by ?community leaders? who benefit from uninformed and isolated followers.? And of course, progressive? Democrats and socialists routinely ignore the Constitution and law to win their political support, while conservatives want laws enforced, and government to serve its citizens.

If those millions of illegal aliens are counted in next year?s census, ?sanctuary? cities, states, and regions will be rewarded with more members of Congress, more electoral votes in choosing our President, and more state, county, and local representatives.??? Meanwhile those cities, states, and regions that enforce the law will be punished with less political power.

1857 Roger B. Taney, Democratic Party Hack and Chief Justice of U.S. Supreme Court
This Supreme Court decision is as political, corrupt, and destructive as the Dred Scott decision of 1857.?? Back then, ar dishonest political hack named Roger B. Taney was the Chief Justice.?? He and a bare majority of the Supreme Court ruled that the Declaration of Independence did not apply to black people, and that a black person could never be a citizen of the United States.

In many speeches between 1857 and 1860, Abraham Lincoln publicly denounced Chief Justice Taney for writing in the Dred Scott majority opinion that the “self-evident” truths of our Declaration of Independence that we are all “created equal and endowed by our Creator with certain unalienable rights” did not apply to blacks.

A lawyer in Illinois named Abraham Lincoln was so angry, that he dedicated the rest of his life to reversing this decision.?? Lincoln published articles and gave speeches around the country, helped build the new Republican Party, and ran for the U.S. Senate and President.?? Within three years, Lincoln was elected President and the new Republicans ended the power of slave-owners to control Congress.

The Civil War began when most of the slave states tried to leave the Union, rather than let Lincoln and the Republicans appoint new Supreme Court justices to overrule the evil Dred Scott decision and stop the expansion of slavery.

Today, the danger of another deadly and destructive Civil War is real.? An important first step is to take back control of our government?including our courts?and ?make sure they again ?preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution of the United States?.

America was never perfect.?? However, when we understood and respected our Constitution and founding principles of liberty embodied in our Declaration of Independence, America brought more wealth, opportunity, and justice to more people than any other nation in history.
