Actually 12 Years Later Supreme Court Anniversary of Shame

Bush v. Gore, 10 Years Later - The Daily Beast: "The case set a more general and pernicious precedent: the casting aside of judicial restraint and deference to states' rights in favor of partisan politics. Despite decrying judicial activism, conservative justices, led by one of Bush's lawyers in the Florida recount debacle, Chief Justice John G. Roberts, Jr., have been eager to overturn the work of legislatures when it comes to guns, campaign finance, and environmental protection.

Pernicious precedent is the apt phrase to speak
Judicial crime done by our highest court
Strong words to speak a clarifying truth
Democracy was sundered in Bush versus Gore
