(Today, September 17, marks the 221st anniversary of the Constitution's signing by our nation's Founders. We need to respect and preserve it!)
There are three branches of government contained within The US Constitution: legislative, executive and judicial. These three brances were designed with checks and balances so that each branch can serve as a continuing check on the others. The judicial, I believe, is out of balance.
Phyllis Schlafly, in her book The Supremacists The Tyranny of Judges and How To Stop It, states, "The U.S. Constitution vests "all" legislative powers in the Congress. That means no legislative powers are granted to the courts. Yes, over the past fifty years, judges have become increasingly activist--legislating from the bench, and writing their own policies and attitudes into the law. In the latter half of the twentieth century, some of our most far-reaching social, economic and political decisions have been made by judges rather than by our elected representatives."
