Judges step out of bounds

--posted by Tony Garcia on 4/12/2005

I could not have said it better myself.

Here are some highlights:
In an 1820 letter, Thomas Jefferson wrote that judges "seem to see (themselves) as the ultimate arbiters of all constitutional questions; a very dangerous doctrine indeed, and one which would place us under an oligarchy."

And here is a list of ways that the judiciary has taken to "amending the Constitution" on their own whims.
Created out of thin air an unlimited right to abortion, including the barbaric practice of partial-birth abortion. Outlawed religious expression in public schools and required removal of the Ten Commandments from public places. Tried to take "one nation under God" out of the Pledge of Allegiance. Struck down Texas' sodomy law, causing Justice Antonin Scalia to note that the court "has taken sides in the culture war." Attempted to redefine marriage over the protests of the American people. And now, Supreme Court justices are undermining our sovereignty by turning to foreign law for precedents in deciding whether minors can be subject to the death penalty.

Suggestions on how to reign these jokers in?
