Libertarian Court?


Says today's USA Today:

"Another off-the-wall opinion from those wacko, liberal judges in San Francisco.

"That was the widespread reaction last June, when a three-judge panel of the 9th Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals declared the reciting of the Pledge of Allegiance in public schools unconstitutional because Congress had inserted the words "under God" in 1954…

"But a closer look at the 9th Circuit suggests that many of its rulings stem not from a liberal approach to the law, but from a libertarian, Western spirit that is shared by its liberal and conservative members. It also reveals that as the frequent handler of groundbreaking cases involving issues ranging from Internet privacy to immigration matters, the court often draws more scrutiny than other circuits do."

Conservatives want to break it up.
