“You seem to consider the judges as the ultimate arbiters of all constitutional questions; a very dangerous doctrine indeed, and one which would place us under the despotism of an oligarchy.”
Letter from Thomas Jefferson to William Jarvis
Why should everyone read this book? Are you certain that what you learned in civics class was correct?
Are you interested in how the structure of the federal government, formed by our founders, has been distorted by the third branch of that government – the United States Supreme Court?
The Court has become an oligarchy exercising a tyrannical rule over our country. Instead of a rule "of the people, by the people, and for the people", changing our lives through our elected representative government and amending the Constitution if necessary, we are ruled by an un-elected Court’s interpretation of words and phrases of that document, or the creation of words and phrases not contained therein, in order to make the social changes the Court desires.
A contract cannot be changed except by the parties who entered into that contract. The Constitution is a contract which must be amended under Article V to be changed, not changed by the Court which was not a party to that contract, having been created by it. The violation of that constitutional principle should cause us to question decisions in several important areas and to re-think what role the Court should be taking in governing us.
The Constitution was born out of the reflective wisdom of our founders, some of the giants of our nation, forming an experiment in government never before tried in history. Let us not have their work be in vain. They tried to protect us from what history had done over and over to people in subjugating them to the will of the few and wanted those decisions important to our lives left to us to decide through those we elected. We must heed their warnings gained by their wisdom and experience!
Read “The Tyrannical Rule of the US Supreme Court” and decide for yourself!
