Not long ago, I watched a few minutes of a Georgetown Law School confab on the last Supreme Court session. It made me angry. What I took away reinforced my belief that our judicial worthies are entirely detached from, and despise self-government or American republicanism, our right to govern ourselves.
Scotus isn’t sovereign. It is supposed to be limited by Natural Law and Supreme earthly Law, our Constitution. It acknowledges neither.
Congress has power in Article III to severely clip the wings of scotus. I forget the name of the senator, but one remarked that congress could reduce the entire federal court system to Chief Justice John Roberts sitting at a card table with a candle. Congress could also prevent scotus opinions from having the effect of establishing new laws or amendments to the Constitution.
As constituted today, Congress will do no such thing. Individual electoral interests of senators combined with strong party control mean that scotus will remain free to implement its social justice visions one decision at a time.
That is of course, if the sovereign people do nothing. By definition, it is from the sovereign that all powers flow. In the American system it is us, and not a president or a gaggle of black-robed lawyers.
Elections are inadequate to restore free government, that happy condition wherein government respects and protects the unalienable, Natural Rights of the nation, and makes no law without its consent.
If we do nothing, our headlong dive into despotism and misery is assured. It is up to us to reassert free government, and that can only be done through an Article V convention of delegates of the sovereign people.
We are the many; our oppressors are the few. Be proactive. Be a Re-Founder. Join Convention of States.
