A historical precendent

Did you know (or remember) that the Supreme Court ruling against Dred Scott's independence from slavery in 1857 so fired up the Republicans that Abraham Lincoln was elected? Not all is parallel between then and now, but it's still worth noting after a ruling this week fired up the Republican base to new heights. Thanks to American Ride on BYUtv for reminding me. Watch it online!
