Roberts Court Upholds Oregon Suicide Law

Some much for dreams of a Conservative court.

Of course, it all depends on what your definition of "conservative" really is.

If your definition includes abrogating states rights and imposing a theocratic rule of law, well, then I've got to imagine you're pretty disappointed.

If, however, conservatism to you means allowing the states self-determination and keeping the federal bureaucracy's nose out of extremely personal, private affairs, then this must at least give you some hope for the future.

Keep in mind tho that this case was not about federalism, but about separation of powers (i.e., the Justice Department "creating" laws that Congress never enacted). The Supreme Court said "no, you're not Congress, don't try to act like Congress."

So, in that limited sense, it could be worse.
