When exactly did the judiciary take over the country? Who decided the courts could rewrite law, ignore the will of the citizenry, take over whole government agencies and unilaterally mandate things like tax policy? Who gave a bunch of Goddamn lawyers the keys to the store?
I don't need to document the abuses of the courts (especially the federal courts), you remember them well from Obamacare to overturning voter mandated propositions in defense of marriage. My question is why are we putting up with this crap? This is NOT a balance of powers, this is a power grab.
Here's the latest outrage making the news, the 14th Amendment. When it was written its intent was to prevent Southern states from denying citizenship to newly freed slaves. It was NOT written to bestow citizenship on the offspring of every squatting peon who could swim a river! The authors of the Amendment address this very issue, they were VERY clear. As evidence I offer the Amendment itself.
All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside.
So, if all those born on American soil regardless of their circumstance are citizens, then please tell me what is the purpose and meaning of "and subject to the jurisdiction thereof"? I can tell you the guys who wrote the Amendment said it absolutely DID NOT mean birthright citizenship, but the courts since at least the 80's say it does. Therefore some judge (or judges) gets a backdoor rewrite of the Constitution because they think they know best and screw the law!
Ladies and gents THIS is how tyranny is achieved. THIS is the rot, the cancer; the subjugation of law to politics. This bastardized interpretation of 14th Amendment that we have been forced to live under to the detriment of our citizen's wealth, livelihoods and security is a perfect example of the corruption of an out of control judiciary, and it doesn't take a Constitutional scholar to see that.
