Without comment, the Supreme Court decided not to hear We The People v. United States, a case which, if heard, would have required the Court to declare -- for the first time history -- whether the Government is obligated to respond to proper Petitions by ordinary, private individuals for Redress of Grievances – specifically Grievances alleging unconstitutional behavior by the Government, and whether the individual having so Petitioned, has the Right to act to peacefully hold the Government accountable if the Government refuses to respond.



The decision by the Supreme Court has grave consequences for the future of individual Rights, Freedom and Liberty, popular sovereignty, government accountability and the great experiment in (self) government that is America. Any Right that is not enforceable is not a Right.

It's just a damn piece of paper anyway.

Thanks for finding this, TGRH. I had heard that the SCOTUS was going to review this case. This is a very sad day, indeed. This is a direct Middle Finger to the People. It has blatantly stated that the govt is not in any way accountable to the people. Hubris at its finest.

Thanks for being concerned. I was starting to think people thought this was something that didn't matter or somehow didn't affect them.

Quite honestly I was waiting until not so many curse words entered my mind when thinking about it to post.

Worrisome indeed, and a good indicator of the state of affairs here in our country.

*curses*

I can't tell if you are being faceitious or not but we are getting very close either way.

It's the boiling frog effect.
