A Supreme Court dominated by right-wing ideologues is ruining America

I have always held the Supreme Court in the highest regard, but after reading recent articles about the court if feel compelled to write.

The court allowed PACS to spend whatever they wanted in our primary and general elections, usually favoring Republican candidates. And it once again has bowed to pressure from the National Rifle Association by permitting every citizen to carry a gun. Heaven help us.

Now the Supreme Court is about to decimate President Barack Obama's health care plan, which would give every American the right to health insurance regardless of pre-existing conditions.

It certainly appears that the Chief Justice John Roberts and his cohorts are right-wing, ultra-conservative Republicans. So much for diversity in future Supreme Court decisions.
