The Center for the Moral Defense of Capitalism posted a “Supreme Court
Year in Review” for 2002 outlining decisions relevant to issues of individual rights. Interestingly, the court sided for individual rights in 55% of the cases, with Clarence Thomas (not suprisingly, my favorite justice) voting 75% for freedom.
So is 55% a positive trend? Yes, but the court should rule for liberty 100% of the time, and I doubt that it is enought to counteract the many anti-liberty actions of Congress, et all since Sept 11th. Still, I’m glad that there are people (kinda) on my side in high places.
