For the many people who sent me messages this week like "I read the blog on the Supreme Court and I can't understand how 9 non-elected, appointed judges have managed to gain so much power that their word is law. I don't believe that our Founding Fathers had intended to put so much power in their hands. Is there any way that the Legislative Branch can overrule them the same as they can overrule the President if they choose to?"
Of course there is a way - the Constitution makes it very clear that the Legislative Branch – the one closest to the citizenry has the final say – not nine unelected judges. What we saw this week in the Supreme Court hearings on ObamaCare, & will soon find out to what extent it affects all of us, is the result of apathy of the people never intended by our Founders. When the citizenry lost interest the politicians including Supreme Court Justices took control over whatever turf they could & we work within such a system today.
I sum up this week's historic happenings by quoting from President Lincoln's first inaugural address the very theme I made all week long – "If the policy of the government, upon vital questions, affecting the whole people, is to be irrevocably fixed by decisions of the Supreme Court, the people will have ceased, to be their own rulers, having to that extent, practically resigned their government, into the hands of that eminent tribunal."
