Rethinking Judicial Activism & Judicial Review

American history and politics were built upon liberty, not security, or obedience to authority. —>

The Supreme Court, an unbounded, unaccountable body, has been operating outside their constitutional confines for too long.

Criminals usually have victims. When a person commits a murder, rape, or theft, it is because they have predetermined that their compelling interests trumps your rights to life, liberty, and property. A crime is committed. When the Supreme Court (part of the government) decides that a“compelling government interest”trumps your rights (the establishment of which preexisted the government), they have committed a criminal act, even when it’s in the name of safety or the greater good.

Challenging this in academic or political circles is difficult and usually receives the astounding equivalency to “I went to school, MAN.” Thus far, I’ve had two PhD professors (A lawyer and a political scientist) tell me to my face that it doesn’t matter if it’s not in the Constitution. Essentially arguing, or assuming, they have the power because they said so. Without an understanding of the letter or the spirit, they totally disregard Article I, sec 8, clause 18 and the Tenth Amendment, just like the Supreme Court.
