    I am in TOTAL agreement with Judge Slalia's opinions, so much to the fact that, I believe that he will play a hUGE part, in helping prosecute MORE officers of the courts AND individuals working 'under color of law', for he understands that much corruption has been anaissue for litigants and has been FAIR on issues, while NOW(2012) realizing that many has been RAILROADED/given EXCESSIVE sentences and have been FALSELY prosecuted in cases that contributed to the sentences they are now(unfortunately) serving this year of 2012.

    PS: I'm PROTESTING for legislators to pass better laws to combat these sentences put on individuals because of 'judges' "owing" eachother favors.

    Does Scalia offer a "textual," "consistent and principled" basis for Bush v. Gore?
