superposition Free

Superposition: In any network with 2 or more sources, the current or voltage for any component is the algebraic sum of the effects produced by each source acting separately. The superposition of forces in a mechanical/electrical network results in compromise and allows the building of better bridges and interfaces. Using one ideology is like using half of a pair of pliers to grasp something. My avatar represents the % of approval, by party, that our congress enjoys. John Adams wrote in a letter in 1780: "There is nothing which I dread so much as a division of the republic into two great parties, each arranged under its leader, and concerting measures in opposition to each other. This, in my humble apprehension, is to be dreaded as the greatest political evil under our Constitution." "I was no party man myself, and the first wish of my heart was, if parties did exist, to reconcile them." GEORGE WASHINGTON, letter to Thomas Jefferson, July 6, 1796.

    Too bad that the SCOTUS made the decision that corporatocracy’s needs were more important than the people’s needs [Citizen’s United]. We could have been free of old money’s privately held fossil fuel assets by now and not concerned about what OPEC is doing. Only 10% of US energy is from renewable sources and we’re still catering to the highly profitable oil barons and their privately held assets. Maybe it’s too hard to see from the inside that the Republican leadership favors the wealthy over the people by working against progress.

    The hatred of equality in liberal democracies — communism from their perspective — has driven the extreme right to endorse incompetent, obstructive, disruptive, chaotic, disestablishment, rude, crude, pseudo-nationalistic, pseudo-theocratic, willfully ignorant [despite education in some cases], con artists to mock/disable/defeat our government of the people and force their authority on the populace by overturning fair election results to get their way and destroy the people’s control.

    With a plurality of the electorate self-identifying as independent/unaffiliated, is it possible that there is really no one biased for the nation and against partisanship?

    How do you accurately/objectively measure bias?

    The breakdown of respect/trust in the truth - because it does not corroborate unfounded opinions/conspiracy_theories/propaganda - is damaging liberal democracies around the world.

    Is the SCOTUS truly independent of political/religious biases? Has the SCOTUS earned our trust and respect? Are they violating their oath of office?

    “…

    The origin of the second oath is found in the Judiciary Act of 1789, which reads “the justices of the Supreme Court, and the district judges, before they proceed to execute the duties of their respective offices” to take a second oath or affirmation. From 1789 to 1990, the original text used for this oath (1 Stat. 76 § 8) was:

    “I, _________, do solemnly swear or affirm that I will administer justice without respect to persons, and do equal right to the poor and to the rich, and that I will faithfully and impartially discharge and perform all the duties incumbent upon me as _________, according to the best of my abilities and understanding, agreeably to the constitution and laws of the United States. So help me God.”

    In December 1990, the Judicial Improvements Act of 1990 replaced the phrase “according to the best of my abilities and understanding, agreeably to the Constitution" with "under the Constitution.” The revised Judicial Oath, found at 28 U. S. C. § 453, reads:

    “I, _________, do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will administer justice without respect to persons, and do equal right to the poor and to the rich, and that I will faithfully and impartially discharge and perform all the duties incumbent upon me as _________ under the Constitution and laws of the United States. So help me God.”

    The ultimate mockery of our system of equal justice for all.

    Resistance to JFK/LBJ policies, Nixon’s southern strategy, and Goldwater’s opposition to Civil/Voting rights opened a floodgate of Dixiecrat, disestablishment, segregationist, isolationist, nationalist, and supremacist voters to change registration to Republican — creating a lowest-common-denominator cohort of anti-democracy voters, that has only intensified over time.

    Tell me again why those who hate democracy wouldn’t admire the obstructive, disruptive, disestablishment, authoritarian, pseudo-theocratic, narcissistic, misogynistic, homophobic, xenophobic, racist leadership of TFG.
