Justice Scalia

However much one disapproves of Justice Scalia's views and the damage they are causing to the US, one has to admire his honesty (Even in Agreement Scalia Puts Roberts to the Lash, New York Times, June 28, 2007, A1 and A16).

Of course it was impossible for Justices Roberts and Alito to sign an opinion that explicitly overturned a prior Supreme Court Ruling. After all these gentlemen had, in their confirmation hearings, piously stated that precedents were sacred and that they would not overrule them (the doctrine of Stare Decisis).

Their actions in the last few decisions have indicated that this was all talk and that they had no intention of conforming to precedent.

These justices lied to get confirmed. On those grounds they should be impeached.
