We have a totally sweet Red Meat Friday theme episode of The Independents waiting for you on your television boxes at 9 p.m. ET, 6 p.m. PT (with repeats three and five hours later) on the Fox Business Network. It's all about the Supreme Court, and who better to give us a tour of its secret quasi-libertarian history and futureshock than beloved Reason superhuman Damon Root, author of the splendiferous Overruled: The Long War for Control of the U.S. Supreme Court. Damon shall provide a précis of his penumbras, as a way of re-jiggering the dull-witted modern understandings of the truly meaningful divides on the High Court.
You think your body's had enough of libertarian SCOTUS-analysis? THINK AGAIN, MORTAL. Beloved Senior Editor Peter Suderman, who will bring a very fine price where we're headed, breaks down Obamacare's upcoming judicial vulnerabilities, and participates in a super-competitive Supreme Court trivia contest. Timothy Sandefur, principal attorney of the Pacific Legal Foundation, talks about the fascinating Facebook/violence/free-speech case Elonis v. United States. And I dunno, maybe you've heard of Fox News Senior Judicial Analyst and Reason.com columnist Andrew Napolitano, author of the brand new Suicide Pact: The Radical Expansion of Presidential Powers and the Lethal Threat to American Liberty? Well, our favorite WHAT-PART-OF-THE-CONSTITUTIONist will be on to assess who is the most libertarian member of the Supreme Court.
Do you even deserve such a good show on cable television? Well, yes, because you have been donating early and often to Reason's annual Webathon, in which we are seeking an audacious $200,000 in tax-deductible contributions by the end of December 9. (Please donate right the hell now, etc.) Part of our essential value proposition is that we serve as your tribune, injecting libertarian arguments into all sorts of venues where they had been previously scarce. Watch tonight's show, and tell me how that's going.
