Some insider observers say, look no further than John Roberts, Chief Justice of the United States Supreme Court, who plunged a dagger into the heart of constitutional freedom by allowing this creeping cancerous menace to remain on unsustainable life support.
Not since America witnessed shock and disbelief on OJ Simpson's defense team's faces when a not guilty verdict was read in open court, have we seen such confusion by a bewildered nation.
Expectations expressed by millions of Americans, relying on John Robert's vote to finally return this virus-like pixie dust to the Wizard in the land of Oz failed to be Unicorn transported back to its fantasy land origins, when he returned his bizarre decision...and accompanying explanation.
So why would a man possessing John Robert's normally unquestionable rationale suddenly shock a nation with such an irrational decision?
There are those who believe he might have received that 3 AM phone call, and the person at the other end of the line was not notifying him of a national or international catastrophe, but rather a personal life changing warning to the Chief Justice, either he 'make the right decision, or have his entire world turned upside down, with revelation of career ending information, allegedly harvested by none other than the National Security Agency (NSA).
The nature of what that embarrassing information might have been, we can only speculate, and prefer to leave the investigative legwork to those more qualified than this observer. BUT Blackmail is Blackmail, whether delivered by 'knee-breaking' gangster thugs, or a so-called 'do-gooder' security gathering government agency.
Take away his fancy title and spiffy black robe, and standing before you will be 'plain old citizen Roberts,' resembling nothing more impressive than every other human you deal with on a daily basis. A lawyer by educational degree, but a political hack who probably dirtied his hands occasionally in order to reach such a lofty position in American structure.
And so now, because of those alleged indiscretions, millions of Americans have been saddled with an unfair and unworkable system, designed to corral us into a Socialist box of anonymity.
