“The germ of dissolution of our federal government is in … the federal judiciary; an irresponsible body (for impeachment is scarcely a scare-crow) working like gravity by night and by day, gaining a little today and a little tomorrow, and advancing its noiseless step like a thief, over the field of jurisdiction, until all shall be usurped from the States.” Thomas Jefferson
Close up of Declaration of Independence

    Thomas Jefferson apparently was able to see into the future. After SOCUTUS ruling yesterday on Obamacare exchanges, they proved that we have no real judicial system anymore, and that the “Justices” don’t believe, nor do they adhere to the Constitution. I am frightened about their upcoming ruling on the definition of marriage. Everyone, please pray!

    1. Most of the current Justices are ruling based on personal opinion, rather than the requirements of the law. They should generally defer to stability and maintaining the status quo, simply because they are not elected and serve lifetime appointments. We’ve gone from a government, “of the people, by the people, and for the people” to a government of the Supreme Court, by the Supreme Court, and for the Supreme Court. Our constitutional republic has become a court-driven oligarchy.
