"Liberals' taking powers away from 'government' seems unlikely unless the ones being 'deprived' by 'government' are 'protected minorities' and it usually has little or nothing to do with 'constitutionality'. With the appointment of John Roberts to SCOTUS, conservatives felt that he would be a strong force for protecting the intent of constitutional limitations on 'government business', but of late, it seems that something besides the Constitution determines his opinions and actions or he just opts out, essentially allowing many controversial and seemingly speciously flawed rationale decisions of lower courts stand.
In 'close" races, never be surprised at the ability of Democrats to 'find' votes for their candidates. As a matter of fact, I think there are some Democrat incumbents who suddenly moved ahead when someone 'found' a sufficient number to give them the lead.
How many times and how many Democrats in Congress DENY that "the individual mandate" was a tax before the ACA ("Obamacare") was voted out of both the House and Senate? In 2009, even Mr. Obama clearly says it is NOT a tax: http://abcnews.go.com/blogs/politics/2009/09/obama-mandate-is-not-a-tax/ Then in 2010 DOJ argued that it IS a tax : http://spectator.org/blog/22908/obama-admin-argues-court-individual-mandate-tax Then, once more -- in 2012 -- Mr. Obama again says it is NOT a tax: http://www.politico.com/politico44/2012/06/obama-campaign-its-a-penalty-not-a-tax-127721.html And to add insult to injury, please note that he said "WE are not going to have other people carrying your burden for you" (which is EXACTLY what virtually ALL liberal 'programs' do) It is like the WMD's in Iraq, first all the 'leading Democrats insisted that Saddam had WMD's, but when President Bush went to war over them, practically all of those same Democrats insisted there never were any WMD's.

Where Are the Angry White Folks?

All it takes for a 'white' person to be adjudged 'guilty' by most of the 'black' community, particularly the race hustling opportunists who 'lead' marches and 'protests' and jump in front of cameras at every chance, but also the race hustling 'liberal' politicians and the sensation creating media and others who wish everyone to see them as 'sensitive' and 'understanding' of 'black' anger and you have a lynch mob mentality that often even gets into the court rooms. In such cases, it seems that it is 'evidence be damned, "whitey'" must be guilty because we have to believe it". In white/black incidents' 'whitey' is almost always deemed 'guilty', often even if proven innocent. The idea these days seems to be that 'justice' only means to placate the angry black (or other liberal politician 'protected' group) agitators
In my opinion, hiring ANY of Mr. Obama's appointees or cronies would not enhance trust in the hiring person or organization, and hiring Mr. Holder would even elevate mistrust. Of course, I would never have hired Mr. Obama for any position a great deal more RELEVANT background information on him.
With Mr. Obama, it appears that running 'government' is totally 'political' while the remaining 95% of his time is devoted tot fundraising and golfing.
I wonder when someone is going to find BACK THEN footage of Democrats praising Obama and his policies and, of course "Obamacare" and NOW footage where those same Democrats won't admit voting for him, knowing him, or approving of anything he did, including signing into law the worst piece of legislation ever foisted on its taxpaying citizens. Time and again, it seems their opinions change with the bad smells coming from this Administration to the point is is almost impossible to get one of them to admit they are for it or against it or if they even have heard about it.
So, a leftist liberal lesbian (or leftist lesbian liberal) seems to be like all other liberals who get power -- try to silence any opposition and render all opponents ineffective and/or unarmed. How many different ways have wee seen leftist liberals claim rights for themselves while attempting to deny -those same rights to any who disagree with them - legally or by intimidation or bankrupting lawsuits or any other means available they think they can get away with?
With a sufficient amount of money, a determined bunch of "social activists" or whatever they may be called, how can one be really sure that the announced election results WERE in fact, the thinking of the majority of voters in Houston. In other locations, in other states, some precincts that voted largely for Democratic Party candidates, there have been 'vote counts' that far exceeded the number of registered voters (even the entire population) in those precincts, but to date I don't recall that any of those results were invalidated.
Remember the "Bill of Rights' was added to the Constitution to enhance the protection of the People from government meddlers and self-serving politicians,bureaucrats and their cronies. Since then, politicians, bureaucrats, etc. have relentlessly sought and generally found or usurped ways to protect and enrich themselves and their 'friends'. "Government service' somehow re-defined to mean 'self-service' with no one attending the cash registers.
