The Left And Their Fantasies Of “Political Dominance”

According to Paul Waldman, the conservative movement’s “most significant policymaking arm” is now an active Supreme Court. On abortion, he believes the Supreme Court will almost certainly overturn Roe v. Wade later this year. These decisions demonstrate how the majority of the court is ticking off things on a long list of ways it intends to change the law in the United States.

In Roe v. Wade, the Supreme Court created an abortion right not even included in the Constitution. Roe invalidated existing laws across the country, but he was the one who came up with the idea in the first place. Roe’s repeal returns such decisions to the states. What kind of policy would we be developing if we replaced the issue with lawmakers and voters?

Moreover, Paul Waldman argues that although Democrats have a God-given right to drive extensive generational reforms through a deadlocked Senate, Republicans are pulling a fast one when they win elections and select and confirm judges using the established constitutional procedure in place since the Founding. According to Waldman, Democrats continue to fantasize about dominating politics in a system that does not exist. It’s a strange situation.

The Supreme Court is poised to demonstrate why it is the conservative movement’s most potent policymaking arm. Affirmative action in higher education would almost certainly be prohibited, and the government’s capacity to protect the environment will be harmed. The verdict on a court with a conservative supermajority of 6 to 3 is all but assured.

The Supreme Court will rule whether Harvard and the University of North Carolina’s race-conscious admissions procedures are legal. In recent years, the court’s membership has shifted to the right, and the new conservative supermajority is probably guaranteed to be skeptical of the challenged programs. According to a Yale law professor, affirmative action has been given death rites several times during the previous five decades.
