My article concerning the end of the Constitution seems to be causing some controversy. Although I have responded to comments, I would like to make a few points:
1. The executive and legislative branches are out of control and the balance of power has now shifted to the executive branch. The judicial branch under Judge Roberts has not issued any decisions that would have stopped this usurpation of power. The decision not to expedite healthcare legislation was a missed opportunity that may be considered a point of no return.
2. The death of the Constitution is definitely a controversial statement. The Constitution is a contract between the people and the government. How many parts of a contract must be violated before the contract becomes void?
3. If a contract is perceived to be broken, our only recourse is to take it to court for a ruling. The process to appear before a Supreme Court is stringent and rightly so. However their lack of action has contributed to our country’s current economic and political situation since power unchecked is now power not to be questioned. Hiding under a black robe is a poor excuse to not step up and defend the rule of law.
Healthcare is unconstitutional and the Supreme Court knows it. Their negligence in this matter may be my personal opinion but I would like for you to consider the following quote:
“The dignity and stability of government in all its branches, the morals of the people, and every blessing of society depend so much upon an upright and skillful administration of justice, that the judicial power ought to be distinct from both the legislative and executive, and independent upon both, that so it may be a check upon both, and both should be checks upon that.”
John Adams, Thoughts on Government, 1776
Let’s see how they react if Congress defunds the administration’s czars and czarinas.
