“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
Were you taught correctly in civics class about the proper role for the U.S. Supreme Court? Do you know how, in the system of designed checks and balances, the Court’s powers are to be checked and balanced against the powers of the other branches?
Are you interested in how the structure of the federal government, formed by our founders, has been distorted by the Court?
The Court has become an oligarchy exercising a tyrannical rule over the citizens of our country, instead of a rule "of the people, by the people, and for the people", as designed by the writers of the Constitution. We are ruled by an un-elected Court’s interpretation of words and phrases in that document, or the creation of words and phrases not contained therein, in order to make the social changes the Court desires. If the Constitution needs to be changed, Article V provides a process for amendment.
Most importantly, 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, since it didn’t exist until the Constitution was ratified. 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 the federal government.
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, with the unique idea that the people ought to be able to govern themselves.. 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, kings and queens and despots, and wanted those decisions important to our lives left to us to decide through those we elect to represent us. We must heed their warnings gained by their wisdom and experience!
