Issues Coming Before the Supreme Court

An overlooked branch of our government, the Supreme Court, and the Justice’s decisions on prevailing issues in front of them now could have an affect in coming years on both the new Administration and Congress.

President Obama is rolling back some of the out going Administration’s past Executive Orders and I’m sure presenting to Congress new legislation, regarding Guantánamo Bay, same sex marriage, Internet filtering and most important the freedom of speech.

The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) presents numerous cases before the court, some I tend to believe are valid and the Justice’s should render the courts decision in liberal sense and others I basically cannot agree with the plaintiffs.

However, the following Playlist YouTube video entitled “Troubling Cases: ACLU Supreme Court Briefing” presents what I feel is a good review of the Justice’s and their past record of voting on cases, what to expect from each of the Justice’s in the coming cases, which could come before them this year and especially how the First Amendment on these coming cases could have a direct effect upon each of us.
