- “As the Court applies whatever standard it likes to any given case, nothing but empty words separates our constitutional decisions from judicial fiat.”
- “The Court has simultaneously transformed judicially created rights like the right to abortion into preferred constitutional rights, while disfavoring many of the rights actually enumerated in the Constitution. But our Constitution renounces the notion that some constitutional rights are more equal than others. A plaintiff either possesses the constitutional right he is asserting, or not—and if not, the judiciary has no business creating ad hoc exceptions so that others can assert rights that seem especially important to vindicate. A law either infringes a constitutional right, or not; there is no room for the judiciary to invent tolerable degrees of encroachment.”
I wonder what would happen if everyone was required to read and understand these quotes from Justice Thomas?
The judicial branch has usurped the legislative authority from Congress. The executive branch has usurped power from Congress. In effect, one elected official with the power to appoint justices now rules. The question is simple: what good is Congress?
