"....A little gridlock in the capitalist government is perhaps the one positive development—the less the capitalist exploiters’ representatives can agree and act in their efforts to take their crisis out on the backs of working people, the better."
A comrade and fellow SWP supporter on Facebook had this to say:
"We are for the separation of powers in the three branches of government as long as the capitalist class hold state power. We are in favor of gridlock. We are for defending the constitution and the Bill of Rights. We are opposed to judges writing law from the bench, be they liberal social engineers or right-wing reactionaries. Given this choice, it is preferable for the Supreme Court to decide law on a strict interpretation of the Constitution. This is ABC which I was taught as a 19 year-old YSA'er."
