Yep. There could be an election that gives the Dems all 3 branches of government. That's how elections work. They will then try to railroad all their legalisation through as fast as they can. But see Obama's first term and the 111th US Congress. All Dems. Things didn't go as Looney Toons as you are imagining.
Uhhhhhhh.......Obamacare.

Bubs, we probably agree more than we disagree, but you have far more optimism than I do. If the Dems gain control of all three branches, they will dismantle our nation in two years. I've seen stuff in the past two months that I never thought I would see, and this is while they're NOT in power. I saw this elsewhere...I'm not going along with all the covid stuff...I'll wear a mask and social distance and I'm not going to bitch about it. But, I think a lot of the rest is on point. It's time to stop capitulating to the left.

Obamacare is government overreach. I don't understand how you can "TAX" someone that doesn't want health care. How is that legal?

I was thinking the same thing. We agree a lot more than not. I like the list. I'll be on a plane to Odessa on Monday. I wear a mask (even at the gym) and try to social distance as much as possible. I also believe in science and in the medical community. If we see cases continue to go up but deaths crash and severity lessen, it should be game on for the entire country and economy.

How is Obamacare justified legally as a tax? Ask John Roberts. He wrote the decision. Obamacare should have been ruled unconstitutional, but Roberts saved it.

Bubs I agree that judges should be apolitical and their judgments should be based on the law, and sometimes that might cause them to decide against what they might believe personally. The problem is that liberal judges like RBG and Sotomayor NEVER do that. They decide what the verdict should be then twist the law to make it fit. Roberts is really no better. On big issues, he will side with the left. He is no Rehnquist.
