The Courts Won't Save You

If there is one thing I've learned from not only the ObamaCare ruling but studying numerous cases from the Supreme Court down to the federal appellate courts, it's that I won't ever count on the courts to fix a problem the legislature created. And neither should you.

Ever since Congress authorized indefinite detention in the FY 2012 National Defense Authorization Act, there has been an ongoing effort from some to get the provision struck down in court as an infringement on free speech.

Proponents of this effort were excited when a lower court struck down the provision, leading to headlines such as "Indefinite Detention 'Permanently' Banned." Unfortunately, the celebratory tone of these posts turned out to be premature, as the Obama administration found a higher court to put a stay on the "ban" on Tuesday.

Everyone is looking for that "magic pill" solution to our problems; unfortunately there isn't one, and on an issue as important as this, we can't sit around and wait hoping it eventually gets to the Supreme Court.
We should not forget that the spark which ignited the American Revolution was caused by the British attempt to confiscate the firearms of the colonists. - Patrick Henry
